Catholic Immigration Summit: Companions on the Journey
Join us for the 7th annual Catholic Immigration Summit, Companions on the Journey: Sharing Stories and Discerning Next Steps, which will take place on Saturday, September 30th at Seattle University. This follow National Migration Week and World Day of Migrants and Refugees (September 18-24).
The event includes:
- Mass with Bishop Elizondo
- Sharing of stories from impacted communities
- Lunch & learn table discussions
- Discerning next steps in the struggle for justice for immigrants
Come join fellow Catholics as we listen, learn, and celebrate ways to be a place of refuge for our brothers and sisters fleeing war, persecution, climate change, and violence. On the recent anniversary of his visit to Lampedusa, Pope Francis urged us to reflect on the question “Where is Your Brother?” and to see everyone who knocks on our door as “worthy of love, acceptance, and every care.” Considering the enduring plight of migrants, Pope Francis called for renewed solidarity.
