World Refugee Day – June 20, 2018

On this World Refugee Day, we commit ourselves to embody Jesus’ clarion call to “welcome the stranger” so that the arduous journey to safety will truly be a journey of hope. We are reminded, too, of the plight of migrant families who are trying to enter the United States. From our statement this week: “To our migrant brothers and sisters, we promise to accompany you on your journey not only through our prayers for your safety and security but also through our continued advocacy for just and fair migration polices.”
