Statement from Catholic Bishops of Maryland
We Need Compassion in Addressing Needs of Vulnerable Immigrant Children
The familiar words of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew, “Whatever you did for one of these
least brothers of mine, you did for me,” speak compellingly to us today as we witness the
plight of the more than 50,000 unaccompanied children fleeing to our country to escape the violence and desperate poverty of their homelands. Here in Maryland the Catholic Church stands ready to answer Jesus’ call to embrace the needs of these children and their families as we offer our welcome and assistance.

Join Maryland Catholics in giving back to our communities!
The Maryland Catholic Conference, in conjunction with Maryland’s diocesan Catholic Charities and Catholic schools, encourages your parish, school, or organization to participate by taking an act of service out into your community or even by hosting an event. As Catholics, we are called to serve our elders in need, feed the hungry and preserve the environment that God created for us. Learn how you can participate!
