POPE FRANCIS:  “It’s not just about migrants…it’s also about our fears.”

World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2019

The Church has been celebrating the World Day of Migrants and Refugees since 1914. It is always an occasion to express concern for many different vulnerable people on the move; to pray for the challenges and increase awareness about the opportunities that migration offers.For 2019, Pope Francis has chosen the theme “It is not just about migrants” to show up our blind-spots and make sure no one remains excluded from society, whether a long-time resident or someone newly-arrived.Video by Migrants & Refugees Section #NotJustAboutMigrants #WDMR2019

    Dear Father Ed,
    I hope you are staying well.

    I just finished viewing the slide show for 2018. While it could never replace being there for all the rituals which have always be so rich and meaningful, the pictures of past events touched my heart.
    I was so touched by seeing past members who are no longer with us: Audrey Parenteau, Loretta Bonham, and Maureen Kirchoff (I believe she is in Bozeman).
    Thank you for being an awesome spiritual leader. Take care. Joan Dodge
