People wait outside the Migrant Resource Centre after being apprehended in the US and sent back to Mexico.

Last December the United States Border Patrol began sending migrants who had been recently apprehended in the US—both Mexicans and Central Americans—back to Mexico.  The Centro de Recursos para Migrantes (Migrant Resource Center) currently receives 40 to 60 migrants every day.

  • Pray for the safety of migrants on their uncertain journey.
  • Give thanks for the volunteers who are working many hours every day to provide food, first aid, and emotional support to the migrants.
  • Ask for courage to speak out against the arbitrary policies of the US Border Patrol.
  • Pray for forgiveness for those who make and carry out those policies.

Septermber Supper Fundraiser

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
