Catholic activists make space and time during the Lenten fast to take action March 09, 2018
Many Catholics decide to give up foods like candy or soda for a personal fast during Lent. But one group of mostly Catholic activists are instead giving up their time to demonstrate in support of undocumented immigrants. We have this story from a demonstration at the end of last month on Capitol Hill. Produced by Melissa Feito. 

The Capuchin Franciscans were among the first to arrive.

Bishop John Stowe, OFM traveled from Lexington, KY support the demonstration.

The crowd prays over the demonstrators right before initiating civil disobedience.
