The question of refugees and immigrants is one of the dividing issues of our time, both in the United States and in other countries throughout the world.
There are no simple and easy answers, precisely because every decision and action has consequences and repercussions on the lives of real people, sometimes far removed from borders and boundary lines.
In light of all these complexities, the Bishops of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have written official letters of guidance, insight, and reflection, as well as produced brochures and pastoral statements intended for a wider audience than just those who read official documents. These writings are not intended to “solve” all our problems in this regard. They recognize the complexities and the conflicting aims, fears, and hopes which are part of this national (and global) conversation. What they offer is a Catholic perspective, a Catholic “voice” as part of that conversation.
This evening will be information, not debate. It will be a presentation of the basic structure and substance of the USCCB’s teaching and guidance on the topic of refugees and migrants. For those who feel they would like to know the Church’s position on the topic, so that they can be better informed as citizens and as Catholics, that’s what you’ll get.
