Continuing the celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Thursday December 12th, CMS’ Linea Laboral Coordinator, Ben Petersen, attended mass with parishioners of St.Michael’s Church in Sunset Park ,Brooklyn. Prior to the mass, Ben marched with parishioners in a procession, led by priests carrying the image of the Our Lady of Guadalupe and followed by a full mariachi band. Though it was very cold and windy,participants were enthusiastic about honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe and carried roses and flowers along the route, which they laid at her alter upon reaching the cathedral.
After the mass Ben passed out Linea Laboral flyers informing parishioners of their rights in the workplace. In conversations with parishioners he highlighted Catholic Migration Service’s Immigrant Worker’s Rights program. Participants in the event were curious about the location of CMS, if restaurant workers could use the service and what are the times of operation of our Linea Laboral live.
