If you feel helpless, you’re not alone. Casa is meeting tonight about how we might respond. Sr. Teresa and Alan visited several detention centers in El Paso but were not allowed to see any children. They brought greeting cards for the children to communicate our solidarity with them. We also know that volunteers are needed for 2 days to a week at a time to attend the night shifts at centers sponsored by the Las Cruces Diocese. More information to follow.
