Bishop Zubik’s Statement on Immigration

From the statement:

“The Church in the United States has always welcomed immigrants. Here, in the Church of Pittsburgh, we have been a Church of immigrants since our earliest days. Immigration has defined us and shaped us as a Church, giving flavor and color, strength and beauty to who we are and what we are as Church.

We must now stand up for those immigrants and refugees who are looking to come to America. Some of them are quite literally fleeing for their lives. They are coming to America with their eyes on the lit torch of Lady Liberty.

Let’s not extinguish that light when the world needs it the most.”
