The workshop, which will be held at the San Gabriel Mission from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., is open to anyone who needs help applying for a U.S. passport book or card. 

“As part of our effort to educate the community on being faithful and responsible citizens, we are partnering with the Office of Passport Services to offer a turn-key solution for people who need to facilitate a first-time passport,” said Isaac Cuevas, Director of Immigration and Public Affairs for the Archdiocese.

The event is the first-ever Passport Workshop hosted by the Archdiocese’s Office of Immigration Affairs and is the latest in a series of workshops hosted by the office.
