The Parish Immigration Team serves a vital role towards fulfilling the mission to “welcome the stranger.” They are committed to work on behalf of immigrants and immigration issues in the context of Catholic social teaching. They help to coordinate efforts in education / conversion, advocacy / solidarity, and empowerment / accompaniment with the native-born members of the parish.
