    More than 40 people gathered at the Washington County Court House Monday morning to express their concern about children being separated from their families by immigration agents at the U.S. border.

“This is hallowed ground upon which we stand and upon which we celebrate the holy sacrifice of the Mass,” Archbishop Alexander Sample told the crowd. “It is our duty, truly our duty, to honor those who made that supreme sacrifice, to honor those who served our country in the armed forces, and to commend to the mercy of God all of our beloved dead.”
