Immigration and Refugee Ministry

The Catholic Church in the United States is an immigrant Church with a long history of embracing diverse newcomers and providing assistance and pastoral care to immigrants, migrants, refugees, and people on the move.  Our Church has responded to Christ’s call for us to “welcome the stranger among us,” for in this encounter with the immigrant, the migrant, and the refugee in our midst, we encounter Christ.

VIA is the diocesan program, in partnership with the diocesan Hispanic Ministry Office, to provide pastoral care, education, public policy advocacy and prayer support on immigration and refugee issues.
