  • This event has passed.

Cost: $30. Scholarships are available, because everyone is welcome at Cranaleith. Please write to info@cranaleith.org so we can assist you.

Cranaleith is thrilled to welcome Catholic Relief Services Northeast Mid-Atlantic Regional team, Maureen H. McCullough, JD, and Ella Guimond for a morning of reflection on one of the most pressing issues of our time: forced migration.

In his recent encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis invites us to explore the critical questions of “Who is my neighbor?” and “How do we respond to them in the context of our time?” Join us as we approach these questions with open hearts and minds. During this morning of reflection, Maureen and Ella will outline the issues from a Catholic perspective, challenging us to come up with ways to change the dynamic and rhetoric swirling around the issue of forced migration.

Should you attend?

Yes, if you have felt anxiety over the forceful separation of children from their parents.

Yes, if you have wondered whether or not it is your responsibility to care for your brothers and sisters in the global community.

Yes, if you are willing to set aside time for prayerful reflection over the issue of forced migration.

Reflect with us.

“If every human being possesses an inalienable dignity, if all people are my brothers and sisters, and if the world truly belongs to everyone, then it matters little whether my neighbor was born in my country or elsewhere. My own country also shares responsibility for his or her development…” (FT, 125)
