The Archdiocese of Los Angeles is inviting Catholics to join in a novena and to watch Masses online this weekend in preparation for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees.
“This has been another challenging year for our immigrant community, made more complicated by the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic,” said Archbishop José Gomez.
“I am really looking forward to this time for us to come together as one family of God, even if it can only be virtually this year, to pray and share God’s love and compassion.”
Catholics are invited to participate in a Sept. 18-26 novena meant as spiritual preparation for the 2020 World Day of Migrants and Refugees, observed Sept. 27.
Catholics are invited also to watch Gomez celebrate Masses via livestream Sept. 20, at 7am PT in Spanish and 10am PT in English.
