Lorain - Cleveland Catholic Bishop Nelson J. Perez will celebrate a special Mass Sunday, July 8th for immigrant families.
The liturgy will be held at 12:00Noon at Sacred Heart Chapel in Lorain, Ohio.
Bishop Perez recently sent a letter to parishioners in the Diocese asking that they look at the current crisis as affecting everyone, and to reject indifference toward immigrants.
During the Mass, the Bishop will commission individuals who have offered to be companions to those being deported through the Parish Companion Program.
