Interfaith Vigil on Immigration: Building a Welcoming Chicago

Interfaith Vigil on Immigration: Building a Welcoming Chicago

Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 11:00pm to Friday, December 17, 2010 - 12:15am

The purpose of the vigil will be to gather a diverse group of faith-
based organizations and communities together to re-discover and re-
affirm the power and importance of interfaith work around immigration
in Chicago, and to recommit ourselves to keep working together in
light of new challenges with a new Congress.

The one hour program will include brief faith reflections on
immigration from leaders in numerous diverse faith communities
throughout Chicago, stories from leaders in Chicago's immigrant
community, prayers and silence for affected immigrant individuals and
families, and a group sharing of New Year's Resolutions around
immigration in cooperation with the National Interfaith Immigration

Visit - for more information on
IIC's national campaign. Please take a moment to consider what your
New Year's Resolution will be in creating justice and equality in
solidarity with our immigrant neighbors, and in building a more
welcoming Chicago for all of God's people.
