Every Friday morning at 7:15 AM, people of faith join together in a prayer vigil at Broadview Immigration Processing Center (1930 Beach St., Broadview, IL) to support those who are in the immigration deportation process, the families of those being deported, and to be a public witness to the injustices of our immigration system. An interfaith prayer service is held on the first Friday of every month. The Rosary is prayed on the remaining Fridays. All are welcome every Friday. No special training or advance notice is needed to participate in the Prayer Vigil.
Praying on the Buses
Each Friday morning, buses filled with men and women shackled by their hands, feet, and waists leave for local airports to be deported. Clergy, lay leaders and people of faith offer prayers on the buses to accompany them in their difficult journey and to let them know that people of faith stand with them and are working to change these unjust policies.
Pastoral Care at Broadview
Teams of clergy and lay leaders go inside Broadview Immigration Processing Center on Friday mornings to pray with and visit with people who are being deported that day. Volunteers also support families as they come to say goodbye to their loved ones.
