World Day of Migrants & Refugees will be celebrated September 29. 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 longtime resident or someone newly-arrived. Learn more about our Maria Madre sister parish and our Migrant Team on Welcome Sunday, September 29. Ronnate Asirwatham, Pastoral Associate for Social Justice, and members of both groups will be in McKenna Hall following the 9am and 11am Masses.
