Via Crucis to the Border will highlight plight of immigrants

Members of the Episcopal Dioceses of Los Angeles and San Diego, including Bishop John Taylor, will draw attention to the plight of immigrants as they travel the way of the cross. There will also be a worship service from the Mexican side of the border.

All are welcome to join in at any of the stops.

At each stop the pilgrims will pray the Stations of the Cross, arriving at the border about 3 p.m. for the last station and celebration of the Eucharist. We will travel by car caravan.

At the border we will bear witness to the plight of those affected by immigration by celebrating the Eucharist, remembering that Jesus was an immigrant. Please be sure to bring your own water. It is a bit of a walk to the wall from the Friendship Park parking lot; please do be prepared for the pilgrimage.
