NATIONAL MIGRATION WEEK January 8-14, 2017
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB’s) Justice for Immigrants campaign is currently working on behalf of the Bishops to promote humane migration policies towards refugees and immigrants that reflects our Catholic values. Join the U.S. Catholic bishops in support of protecting immigrants and refugees by sending an electronic postcard to Washington, DC asking that lawmakers ensure humane treatment towards migrants and refugees. The postcards may be sent from Justice for Immigrants’ homepage at www.justiceforimmigrants.org More information about the Catholic bishops’ JFI campaign may also be found on the JFI website.
“Closeness to the poor, the refugee, the immigrant, the sick, the exploited, the elderly living alone, prisoners and all God’s other poor, will teach us a different way of resting, one which is more Christian and generous.” – Pope Francis
