Living As People of God in Unsettled Times

BishopSwain_BoxThumbBelow is the statement “Living as People of God in Unsettled Times”, a pastoral reflection on immigration adopted by the Administrative Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. I fully associate myself with it and urge it be shared and studied by all. It thoughtfully and beautifully encapsulates the teachings of the Church on immigration, and offers guidance on our appropriate response to the issues of the day, centered on the respect and dignity for all persons.I also refer you to my Bishops Bulletin column in the January 2017 issue.
