ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A coalition of religious groups and immigrant organizations is holding a vigil in Albuquerque in honor the women walking 100 miles to see Pope Francis.

The “Interfaith Vigil for Immigrant Justice and Dignity” is scheduled Thursday evening in Albuquerque’s Barelas neighborhood.

The vigil will serve as a “send-off” for four Albuquerque women who will join the Women’s Pilgrimage for Migrant Justice. The 100-mile march involving 100 women will walk from the York County Detention Center in Pennsylvania to Washington, D.C., later this month.

Pope is scheduled to meet with President Obama and address Congress at the same time and he is expected to bring up the topic of immigration.
