The Catholic Bishops of Texas, including Bishop Michael F. Olson, issued a "Statement of Principles Regarding Refugee Families and Children."
The statement, distributed by the Texas Catholic Conference which is the Bishops state level organization, has been shared with members of the Texas Legislature and members of Congress who represent Texas.
Bishop Michael F. Olson has written a pastoral letter to the faithful of the Diocese of Fort Worth on the unaccompanied refugees crisis. In addition, Bishop Olson requests that the unaccompanied refugee children be included in each parish’s Prayers of the Faithful.
