“’If I had my druthers, churches would be having prayer vigils all over the place,’ said Sister Janice Vanderneck, executive director of Casa San Jose, a resource center for the Pittsburgh-area Latino community.  She said the center, like others aiding immigrants and refugees, has been inundated by callers offering to help. ‘People want to do something,’ she said.”  Peter Smith, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, June 19, 2018.  Read more here.
