Fr. Roy Snipes, OMI Leads March Against Proposed Border Wall

August 21st, 2017

On Saturday, August 12, Fr. Roy Snipes, OMI, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe church in the border city of Mission, TX, led a procession to La Lomita Mission in efforts to raise awareness and resist the plans to build a border wall in the Rio Grande Valley. The proposed wall would leave behind their land and river. The historical La Lomita Mission would be walled off along with many miles of a wildlife reserve. This community is speaking up in hopes that their voice will reaches the rest of the nation.
