Religious communities opening spaces in their homes to refugees

Refugees and Migrants Working Group
Of the JPIC commission USG – UISG

Dear JPIC Promoter,

You are invited to join us on October 18, 2017 from 9 – 12 at UISG for a sharing and discussion on the experience of religious communities opening spaces in their homes to refugees in response to the call of Pope Francis.

We ask you to share this invitation with your General Council members and house coordinators inviting them to attend this meeting.

Religious communities who have welcomed Refugees into their houses in various ways will try to answer the following questions:
What are the blessings?
What are the challenges?
What are the best practices?
What are the questions?

You will have time to discuss and ask questions you may have; Centro Astalli personnel who coordinate this mission will be present to assist in this.

Please R.S.V.P. to

Sr. Kathy Schmittgens, SSND
Acting Coordinator of the Working Group
