Father Hall reflects on life of service

It was 1992. Father Douglas Hall found himself ministering to thousands of Catholics in a country where such actions were forbidden.
A chaplain in the U.S. Air Force, Father Hall was assigned to the military base in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. While there, he encountered a large population of foreign workers from the Philippines who were practicing Catholics.

Mendoza founded the clinic to provide low- and no-cost primary health care to residents of the Anapra neighborhood of Juarez.

Sister of Mercy Kathleen Erickson, who for more than two decades has been involved with educating people about immigration issues and ministering to immigrants detained on the U.S.-Mexican border, said controversy surrounding the topic is fostered by fear, a lack of knowledge, inequality among corporations and a struggle to know what to do.
