Dear Pastors, Parochial Administrators, Clergy and School Administrators:

In the light of ongoing concerns regarding the new Administration’s immigration enforcement policies, I am inviting all pastors, clergy and principals to a special meeting to discuss this matter on Friday, August 25th from 10 am to 12 pm at the Pastoral Center.

I have also asked the Office of Catholic Charities & Social Concerns to produce 40,000 Catholic Know Your Rights Cards (English/Spanish) which will be mailed to each parish and school at the end of August.

Lastly, I wish to remind parish staff to coordinate all immigration questions and referrals to one of our three Catholic Charities Member Agencies: Sacramento Food Bank & Northern Valley Catholic Family Services Social Service Andrea Tafolla (916) 313-7604 Mariela Hernandez, Immigration BIA or [email protected] 530-824-4039 or [email protected] Catholic Charities of Solano Teresa Alonso-Bray, Immigration Dir. 707-644-8909 or [email protected]

Let us together pray that the wisdom and mercy of the Lord Jesus help us all to seek the common good and further human solidarity in these challenging times. Respectfully, + Jaime Soto Bishop of Sacramento
