Next Sunday is the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Pope Francis has asked us to pray for our brothers and sisters who find themselves needing to leave their home country due to conditions that either endanger them or do not allow for basic human needs. As you know, many lose their lives each year in these attempts at a more dignified life. Our Bishop James Tamayo will celebrate Holy Mass on Saturday September 28 at 10AM at Tres Laredos Park, (1300 Pedregal St, Laredo, TX 78040) situated along the banks of the Rio Grande near the Laredo Outlet Mall. Please consider praying with us.
