The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has a long history of concern and advocacy for the immigrant community. As we work with and minister to our parishes and schools we recognize that Church of immigrants so we take seriously the Gospel call to welcome the stranger among us.
To bring focus and continue to strengthen this important ministry, Archbishop José H. Gomez has created the Office of Immigration Affairs, which will be dedicated to this work. Archbishop Gomez has appointed Jaime Huerta, formerly associate director of the Office of Life, Justice and Peace, as director of the new office.

The USCCB Letter to congress on the Affordable Care Act dated January 18, 2017
“All people need and should have access to comprehensive, quality health care that they can afford, and it should not depend on their stage of life, where or whether they or their parents work, how much they earn, where they live, or where they were born. The Bishops’ Conference believes health care reform should be truly universal and it should be genuinely affordable.” Read entire letter.
