Migration


The long tradition within Catholic Social Teaching of upholding human dignity reveals the “call upon all people of good will, but Catholics especially, to welcome the newcomers in their neighborhoods and schools, in their places of work and worship with heartfelt hospitality, openness and eagerness” (Welcoming the Stranger Among Us: Unity in Diversity, U.S. Catholic Bishops, 2001). On the 2014 World Day of Migrants and Refugees in 2004, Pope Francis explained, “We ourselves need to see, and then to enable others to see, that migrants and refugees do not only represent a problem to be solved, but are brothers and sisters to be welcomed, respected and loved.” The SCSJ seeks to put these teachings into action, committing to a vision of migration based on human dignity. We aim to advocate for the refugees and immigrants who experience unjust treatment and rejection.
