National Migration Week

National Migration Week 2013 will be held from January 6-12. The theme, "We are Strangers No Longer: Our Journey of Hope Continues," commemorates the 10th anniversary of the historic joint pastoral letter of the United States and Mexico bishops conferences, Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope. As the U.S. Bishops state on their website:
This theme reminds us of our responsibility as Catholics to help newcomers integrate in ways that are respectful, culturally sensitive and responsive to social needs, and of the ongoing need for comprehensive and compassionate immigration reform.
