Dominican Family of Houston* calls on people of all faiths and spiritual traditions, lay and ordained, to join us in an around-the-clock vigil watch at the site of a proposed child detention facility in Houston, 419 Emancipation Avenue. This facility would not be necessary if the current administration had not implemented the cruel and inhumane policy of forced family separation. That is why we must bear witness as preparations are made in our community to detain children unjustly taken from their parents. Tell us when you’re available and we will contact you to sign up for a two hour shift.
*We, members of the Dominican Family are called to embody the Dominican charism, seek Truth, preach the word of God, and promote the dignity of all persons. As part of the global Dominican Family we commit ourselves to lives rooted in prayer, study, community and preaching. Through our gifts of diversity, we strive to grow together as co-creators of justice and peace.
