CATHOLIC TEACHING ON MIGRATION
Among the many contentious issues that form the public conversation these days is immigration and its implications in public policy, the economy, as well as our spiritual lives. On Thursday evening, Father Daniel Groody, a Holy Cross Father and associate professor of theology at Notre Dame University, will give a presentation at Messiah College on the theology of migration. If you’re tired of angry commentary and instead want to learn authentic Catholic teaching on issues related to migration, please take your time to attend this presentation Thursday evening.

HOMILY FOR RESPECT LIFE SUNDAY
