On Tuesday, August 1, a group from Assumption Church in Bellingham began the Pilgrimage for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  Parishioners from several parishes along the route joined the Assumption Parish group for part of the pilgrimage.  The group arrived at St. James on Tuesday, August 11 for evening Mass, then headed off to St. Mary's, where they shared a meal and stayed the night.  The pilgrimage ended in Tacoma, Washington.  Read more about the pilgrimage at http://whatcom.blogs.com/


The pilgrims arrive at the Cathedral, hot and tired after a long day of walking.


Many more joined the group for Mass at the Cathedral.


Leaving the Cathedral and heading toward St. Mary's Parish.  Joining the pilgrims is Michael Ramos, head of the Church Council of Greater Seattle, pictured in the pink shirt.


St. Mary's parish hosted the pilgrims for a much-needed and much-appreciated dinner!




The evening concluded with a discussion of the issues involved in comprehensive immigration reform.  Many thanks to all who participated!  To learn more about the church's call for comprehensive immigration reform, see www.justiceforimmigrants.org.
