Archdiocese to hold rally on immigration reform

The Archdiocese of Chicago will host the 13th annual Posada for immigration reform at 7 a.m. Friday, Dec. 14, outside the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Center, 101 West Congress Parkway, Chicago. Based on a centuries-old tradition throughout Mexico, Guatemala and migrant communities in the U.S., the archdiocese's Office of Human Dignity and Solidarity-Immigration Ministry sponsors the one-mile pilgrimage symbolizing Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem traveling from place to place seeking rest and shelter, also known as Posada. "In anticipation of Jesus' birth, let us open our doors and hearts to the stranger and refugee seeking protection and acceptance just as the Holy Family once did," Cardinal Blase J. Cupich said in a news release. For information, go to
