Mercy Sr. JoAnn Persch at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement staging center in Broadview, Illinois, where immigrants previously were processed and taken into detention (which now happens in Kankakee, Illinois), and where she and others have prayed every Friday morning for more than 13 years. Now the group will pray a rosary on Friday mornings over a group video call to keep up the tradition. (Courtesy of the Sisters of Mercy)
