Holy Week Pilgrimage for Immigrants

HOLY WEEK PILGRIMAGE FOR IMMIGRANTS 2012

www.pilgrimageforimmigrants.wordpress.com

The Holy Week Pilgrimage for Immigrants is an act of faith, solidarity, and hospitality; it is a prayer with feet.  With our feet we pray that our faith communities and nation will search for ways that favor a spirit of solidarity with and justice for immigrants.  We walk by a faith that transcends borders and bids us to overcome all forms of discrimination and violence so that we may build relationships that are just and loving.

2012 PEREGRINACION POR LOS INMIGRANTES DE SEMANA SANTA

www.pilgrimageforimmigrants.wordpress.com 

La Peregrinación por los Inmigrantes es un acto de fe, solidaridad, y hospitalidad; es una oración con los pies.  Con los pies oramos para que nuestras comunidades de fe y nuestra nación busquen maneras a favor de un espíritu de solidaridad y justicia para los inmigrantes. Caminamos con una fe que trasciende fronteras y nos llama a superar todas las formas de violencia y discriminación para que podamos establecer relaciones en justicia y amor.
