A Catholic group is holding monthly rosaries outside Portland’s St. Mary Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in solidarity with immigrants.
The next gathering of “Justice for Immigrants: We are one family under God” is set for Saturday, Dec. 14, 11 a.m. on the cathedral front steps, 1716 NW Davis.
 
Organizers say the prayer is meant to show solidarity with immigrant families and raise Catholic awareness of what they call the nation’s “inhumane immigration policies.”
 
The prayer is designed after the U.S. Catholic bishops’ Justice for Immi-grants campaign, which seeks to educate the Catholic community about Church teaching on migration and create political will for just and hu-mane immigration reform.
