With the recent surge of Central American migrants coming over the southern border of the U.S., Oblate Father Roy Snipes is again making his parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mission, Texas a haven for hundreds of migrants seeking shelter, food and the bare necessities after making the arduous journey from countries like Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
In this copyrighted news story produced by Rio Grande Valley’s KVEO-TV in Harlingen, TX, Fr. Snipes shows reporter Mike Jimenez how he is using the church, school and parish center along with community volunteers to feed and house the overflow of migrants from government facilities.
