Sisters of St. Joseph and Associates continue Rolling Fast for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
In the material that was distributed prior to our celebration of National Migration Week, Bishop Wester reminded us that "fasting is a reminder of our hunger for God." We were invited to consider ways in which we might join in rolling fast until such time as just immigration reform measures are passed by Congress. The material also included an invitation to come together for communal prayer, and to share a simple meal of soup and bread. As we begin our Lenten Journey, we take some time to be in touch with our God-hunger and to reflect on the many kinds of hunger our immigrant families experience.
