Immigrant Families Reunite at LA Church

Immigrant families reunite at LA church after decades, and a border, apart

Flowers, tears and hugs filled a church hall in Los Angeles as 33 families were reunited with loved ones – some for as long as 29 years apart – from Jalisco, Mexico, for Easter weekend.

The gathering happened at St. Francis Cabrini Parish, near LAX, on a rainy Saturday, March 30.

Inside the Imperial Highway church hall, one by one, family members’ names were called as more than 150 people gathered, waiting to reunite with their family from Mexico. The song “Bendecid Oh Señor Mi Familia” accompanied the ceremony, calling for blessing to the families.

Asociación de Clubes Jaliscienses de California (Jalisco Clubs of California Association) helped in getting the families together.
