Area Catholics Urged To Participate In National Catholic Call-In Day Next Monday

The most Reverent, Bishop R. Walker Nickless of the Sioux City Diocese, is joining Bishops across the country in encouraging U.S. residents to participate in national Catholic “call-in day.” This initiative asks people to contact their Congressional representatives in support of the 1.8 million Dreamers on Monday, Feb. 26. The call-in-day is designed to escalate the efforts in urging Congress to find a legislative solution before the March 5 deadline that President Donald Trump has set for ending the executive branch protection call “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” or “DACA.” Directions on how to complete the Lenten action for Dreamers is included below.
