The Diocese of Laredo participated in Wear Blue Day in observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month. Diocesan employees, Catholic schools, and parish staff wore blue clothing/ribbons to show their support for this worthy cause.

Please continue to fight for children who are abused and neglected. Kids cannot defend themselves; they are not able to stand up for themselves and say no. We all deserve dignity, respect, and love.
