Catholic Church in California launches initiative to help immigrants become American citizenship
Initiative is part of the Holy Year of Mercy: Heeding the call of Pope Francis during the Holy Year of Mercy, the Catholic Church in California has begun an effort to naturalize the hundreds of thousands of Legal[?] Permanent Residents who are not fully realizing the promise of citizenship.

The following comes from a February 23 Diocese of Orange press release:
The Most Rev. José H. Gómez, Archbishop of Los Angeles, will join the Most Rev. Dominic Luong, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Orange, other Bishops and clergy, and parish leaders from across California at Christ Cathedral on February 27, 12 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., for the launch of a comprehensive state-wide initiative that will bring together the California Catholic Conference of Bishops, diocesan administrations across the state, Catholic Charities, and local parishes in a coordinated effort to naturalize the estimated 2.4 million Legal[?] Permanent Residents eligible for naturalization in California (Department of Homeland Security, 2013).
This effort represents a new program that will offer practical assistance for legal[?] residents seeking full citizenship. This effort will work in parallel with the Church’s ongoing efforts toward comprehensive immigration reform.
