Jan 05, 2012

Newman University’s Hispanic American Leadership Organization (HALO) and the Immigrant Family Support Network are partnering to sponsor a Prayer Vigil in support of immigrant families and for a just legislative session in Kansas. The prayer vigil will be held in the Dugan-Gorges Conference Center on Friday, Jan. 20, at 7 p.m.

Several distinguished speakers, including the Most Reverend Michael O. Jackels, Bishop of Wichita, will participate in the event which will involve personal testimony and prayer. The Prayer Vigil is designed to bring together many faith communities to pray for the rejection of “hate laws” in Kansas. The public is invited to join HALO and the Immigrant Family Support Network for this ecumenical, free event.
