LCWR – Leadership Conference of Women Religious requested that the U.S. Sisters assist the migrants and caregivers at the U.S. southern borders in any way possible. Sisters from various religious congregations are responding to this endeavor in a variety of ways.
Our faith calls us to respect the dignity of life in all its forms. Here are some ways Sisters of the Precious Blood of Dayton are caring for immigrants:
- Two of our Sisters spent several weeks in El Paso, Texas from January 12-26th assisting those who are caring for asylum seekers released from the immigration detention centers. They worked at Annunciation House. For more information click here.
- A monetary donation was given for refugee relief efforts at a detention center in San Bernardino, California
- Some furniture and household items were given to a house of immigrants in Dayton, Ohio
- Contacts are being made with Catholic Social Services or Catholic Charities of SW Ohio and the City of Dayton for resources to assist immigrants.
