Prayer Vigil for Immigrant Justice

Today’s Jericho walk was C-O-L-D! It’s a sign of the changing of seasons. The NH Council of Churches brought a box of hats and coats for both the walkers and the immigrants who have to wait outside for their check-in.

After the walk, Father Sam Fuller, OFM Cap., showed us an apple pie that he went to deliver inside to one of the immigration workers. He read his letter to us, emphasizing that kindness to immigrants and respect for difference are “as American as apple pie.”
