The Del Rio, Texas, Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally was held on Friday October 19 at 5:00 p.m. at Val Verde County Court House. The date had to be moved up a day due to Del Rio’s Amistad (Friendship) Parade. Del Rio Texas is a border town and it has been a tradition to celebrate this parade with Acuña Coahuila Mexico, our sister city.

Guest speakers were Father Henry Clay Hunt, pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church and Mr. Gene Chapman, former chairman of the local Republican party. Our emcee was Lucy Van Goethem. Letty Escobar lead the Pledge Allegiance and Father Pious, pastor of Sacred Heart Church, lead the closing prayer.

This was our third Stand Up Rally and we are very proud to stand up for religious freedom.
