Cardinal Tobin to join hundreds of Catholic leaders rallying to end child and family immigrant detention

225

 

On Wednesday, Sept. 4th at 10 a.m. at the St. Mary’s Church/Newark Abbey, a coalition of Catholic sisters, priests, brothers, lay Catholic advocates and immigrants including the Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, Cardinal Joseph Tobin will gather to continue a strategic campaign to pressure the Trump administration and Congress to “stop the inhumanity.” The campaign calls for an end to the detention of children and families, which is contrary to Gospel values as written in Matthew chapter 25 where we are called to welcome the stranger, feed the hungry, and care for the sick.
