This year, the Archdiocese of Atlanta Laudato Si’ Initiative is participating in the #iGiveCatholic giving campaign. Advanced giving has begun and culminates on Giving Tuesday, November 29. We hope those of you who are able will make a donation to our campaign. We would also like to ask everyone to consider posting our campaign on your socials as well as spreading the word to your networks, families and friends. We have an ambitious goal that will help us make a significant impact, and your support is much appreciated.

Show your support for Dreamers
For many years, the Catholic bishops of the United States have called on Congress to provide Dreamers with the ability to integrate as fully recognized members of our society. This includes those who have benefited from DACA.Last March, the House of Representatives passed the American Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) with broad bipartisan support. Unfortunately, the Senate has failed to take up the bill. Please urge Congress to move forward with creating a pathway to permanent legal status for Dreamers today.
