Welcoming the Refugee and Migrant: What Our Church Teaches

Oct 7th, 2017

In our times it is good to turn to the teachings of our Catholic Faith as we consider the plight of the many immigrants and refugees, exacerbated by wars, violence, and natural disasters throughout our world. How are we to respond? What is our Gospel calling? In order to help us appreciate what our Catholic Church has to say about those forced by desperate circumstances to leave their homelands, the USCCB/United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has recently published a pamphlet entitled Welcoming the Refugee and Migrant. Copies are available in the church narthex (54th street entrance) as well as the south foyer (parking lot entrance). Please take one!
