A group supportive of immigrants in the Louisville area kept vigil outside St. Edward Church during morning Masses Oct. 16. Father James Flynn, a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Louisville, has been holding such vigils for several years to show solidarity with and welcome to the immigrant community. He and others currently hold a regular vigil for immigrants in Hikes Point on Saturday mornings.
