JUSTICE AND SOLIDARITY: CARING FOR REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS

Saturday, November 4, 2017, 8:00am-1:30pm

 BC High School, 150 Morrissey Blvd, Boston, MA 02125

 

Pope Francis has declared that “the only solution to the migration crisis is solidarity…Dioceses, parishes, religious institutes, organizations and individual Christians: we are all called to welcome our brothers and sisters who are fleeing war, hunger, violence and cruel conditions of life” (General Audience, 10/26/2016)

Join parishes from around the Archdiocese of Boston as we seek to promote Catholic Social Teaching and explore concrete ways to respond to Jesus’ calling: “I was a stranger and you welcomed me” (Mt 25:35).
