Catholic Charities offers workshop for aspiring citizens

First slide

Diocesan Catholic Charities partnered with American Immigration Lawyers Association to host a citizenship day workshop, assisting more than 30 individuals to prepare and apply for U.S. citizenship in Alexandria Sept. 13.

“Catholic Charities’ and AILA’s partnership on this workshop helps men and women working, often at great personal cost to themselves and their families, to achieve the dream of U.S. citizenship,” said Art Bennett, Catholic Charities president and CEO. “Each participant is a story of courage and hope. Our mutual commitment to working with these immigrants demonstrates our respect for the dignity of each and every human person and a desire for them to flourish in our country.”

The workshop, which included consultation and application preparation for attendees, is one of approximately eight to 10 workshops Catholic Charities offers annually.
