The Catholic Voice

The Catholic Church often has been a leader in working with immigrants. So it's not a surprise to Father Ryan Lewis, vice chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha, to see the church among the leaders in working for immigration reform.

'The church has been proactive in this area, especially in terms of outreach," Father Lewis said about the church's work with immigrants. 'We've been ahead of the curve."
