It is through your generosity that the Catholic Church will continue to minister the love of Christ to the people living in the seven counties within the Diocese of Laredo.

The Diocese of Laredo is facing a humanitarian crisis due to the number of migrants being released on our border. Catholic Charities - Diocese of Laredo has been informed by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Border Patrol (BP) that the number of migrants being released in Laredo, will increase dramatically in the coming days and weeks. ICE and BP will start transporting migrants, not only from Eagle Pass and Del Rio, but also from the Rio Grande Valley area.
