In Faith there is no Border

Monday, December 9, 2019

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Laredo works hand in hand with Homeland Security and the Federal Authorities to provide support and respond to any humanitarian crisis on our border. In 2019, Catholic Charities has provided humanitarian assistance to almost 15,000 migrants,including children, who would otherwise be left on the streets with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Pope Francis says that the presence of migrants and refugees - and vulnerable people in general - is an invitation to recover some of those essential dimensions of our Christan existence and our humanity.

On behalf of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Laredo, I want to thank all the volunteers, benefactors, and people of goodwill, who make our ministries possible and enable us to live out our mission.

Sincerely,

Ben De la Garza

Executive Director of Catholic Charities

Beautiful video that was created by the Providence/St. Joseph Health System for its employees about the humanitarian crisis on our border. This video was created to help their 138,000 employees understand the need for support—both monetary and voluntary—for the Catholic Charities agencies providing service to the migrants.
