It is our call as the Church to bring the light of Christ to migrants and help them move from the margins of society to its center
National Migration Week– January 5-11, 2014
The Jesuits join the US Catholic Bishops in promoting this year's National Migration Week, "Out of the Darkness," which takes place January 5-11. It is our call as the Church to bring the light of Christ to migrants, particularly the most vulnerable—children, the undocumented, refugees, and victims of human trafficking—and help them move from the margins of society to its center. This requires prayer and an active presence in the public square to demand that protections are provided to those who need them most.
