GREENSBURG — As part of the national effort to bring attention to the need for humane immigration reform, the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill collaborated with the Diocese of Greensburg and Justice for Immigrants, a project of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, to sponsor a Pilgrimage for Peace and Immigration Reform from Greensburg to Pittsburgh Oct. 4.
The group witnessed, prayed and learned firsthand from new immigrants to the country about the importance of immigration reform.
Sisters at Seton Hill accompanied the group in their prayers throughout the day.
Sisters of Charity Susan Jenny, Barbara Ann Smelko and Barbara Einloth met with Mary Ellen Pellegrino, director of Pro-life and Social Ministry for Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Greensburg, at the Greensburg bus station to begin the trip to Pittsburgh. They all donned brown vests to show they were welcoming immigrants and praying for peace.
