Bishop Jorge Rodriguez hopes to offer information and encouragement for Hispanic communities in their anxious times awaiting President Trump's next move on immigration.
Rodriguez, the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Denver, will hold discussions in Aurora, Denver and Greeley next week with the consuls general of Mexico, Guatemala and Peru.
"We know that recent events in this country have raised concerns and fear among some in the Hispanic community, especially for our immigrant brothers and sisters," Rodriguez said in a statement. "It is hard for someone who isn't from this country to really understand all that is currently happening.
"We want to offer these sessions to provide good information from good sources."
The meeting next Tuesday evening in Greeley is at St. Mary Parish at 2222 23rd Ave.
Wednesday's hearing is in Aurora at Queen of Peace Catholic Church at 13120 E Kentucky Ave., and the March 31 event is in Denver at Centro San Juan Diego at 2830 Lawrence St.
Each begins at 6:30 p.m.
Trump won the majority of Catholic votes in November. Self-identifying Catholics backed Trump by 52 to 45 percent margin against Democrat Hillary Clinton. President Obama won Catholics by a 50 to 48 margin percent in 2012.
Catholic bishops, however, have condemned Trump's orders on immigration and refugees.
"This will remind people there were times when people who were Catholic were not welcome because of where they came from and what they believed." said John Carr, former policy director for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and currently the director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University.
