Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) action suggestion:
“I was a stranger, and you welcomed Me”
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops,
through its office of Justice for Immigrants,
has been a leading voice with Congress
for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
During Lent, the bishops have invited Catholics to
make calls to Catholic members of Congress
asking those members to support reform that
provides a reasonable path to citizenship and
promotes family unity.

Chapter Acts in action
Following our 2010 Chapter Acts, we strive to respect justice, peace and global needs by specific actions in the following areas:
• Studying the immigration issue with a view toward taking a corporate stand.
• Working for systemic change of unjust structures.
• Acting in partnership with those living in poverty to meet human needs as we can.
• Advocating for nuclear disarmament.
You are invited to join us in our efforts to work for peace and justice. By doing this you will give a voice to persons who are voiceless and join us as we “offer every loving service in our power to meet the critical needs of God’s people.” (SCL Mission Statement)
