An interfaith statement on immigration reform was presented to a crowd of more than 400 people attending a conference hosted by Valley Interfaith on October 13.
Among those participating were the spiritual leaders of many different faith traditions, including: Most Reverend Daniel Flores, Bishop, Diocese of Brownsville, the The Rt. Rev. David Reed, Bishop Suffragan, Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, the Reverend Dr. Ray Tiemann, Bishop, Southwestern Texas Synod, ELCA, the Reverend James Dorff, Bishop, San Antonio Episcopal Area United Methodist Church, and the Reverend Kelly Allen, Chair, Task Force on Immigration, Mission Presbytery, Presbyterian Church USA.
The event was held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in McAllen.
Here is the statement by the bishops, titled Principles of Humane Immigration Reform.
We are grateful to these men and women of faith for taking the lead in this important justice issue.
