FAN ED Patrick Carolan and others will Fast for Immigration Reform

Faith in Public Life has coordinated a Fast for Immigration Reform to garner prayer and support for a vote in the House of Representatives on this very important issue. FAN has committed to having one Franciscan every day involved in this Fast, with our own Patrick Carolan helping to kick off the event on Nov. 12.  Some participants will be in Washington DC in a tent that is being provided for the fasters, some will be showing their support by fasting at home.

If you would like to show your support for fixing our broken immigration system, sign up to fast for one day between November 12 and December 12. You can contact Patrick Carolan directly at, or our organizer, Jason Miller at

We will keep you updated on this event as it progresses. Let's keep immigration reform moving forward toward a vote this year.
