Diocese "shares the journey" through letter-writing campaign

In response to Pope Francis’ “Share the Journey” campaign, which invites Catholics to be in solidarity with migrants from around the world, our diocese has joined with the other Catholic dioceses of Ohio, and many community partners, to urge Congress to pass the DREAM Act or similar legislation protecting young immigrants.  After encouraging parishes and schools to participate in our letter-writing campaign, the Diocese of Youngstown and the other dioceses collected 15,000 letters calling on Congress to protect the rights of immigrants.  By sharing these letters with Ohio’s sixteen representatives and two senators, we are responding to the Scriptural call to raise our voices on behalf of those in need (Proverbs 31:8).
