Building the Future with Migrants and Refugees – National Migration Week 2022

Building the Future with Migrants and Refugees – National Migration Week 2022

For nearly a half century, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week, which is an opportunity for the Church to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants, including immigrants, refugees, children, and victims and survivors of human trafficking. Commenting on the place of migrants in God’s plan, Pope Francis emphasizes that “the Kingdom of God is to be built with them, for without them it would not be the Kingdom that God wants. The inclusion of those most vulnerable is the necessary condition for full citizenship in God’s Kingdom.”

Let us take some time to reflect on how we can better welcome, protect, promote, and integrate migrants living in our midst. More information about can be found…

Archdiocese of Boston Emmaus Ministry Spiritual Retreat for Grieving Parents – October 15 in Braintree

Archdiocese of Boston Emmaus Ministry Spiritual Retreat for Grieving Parents – October 15 in Braintree

The Archdiocese of Boston Family Life team invites all parents who have lost a child to a one-day retreat led by Emmaus Ministry. Parents who have lost a child of any age, by any cause, no matter how long ago, are most welcome and invited to attend.

Losing a child of any age is horrific to endure. Focusing on the spirituality of the grieving process can help tremendously. Just as He comforted his grieving disciples on the road to Emmaus, Jesus comforts us and we comfort one another in this very special ministry.

Join other Emmaus parent companions in a warm and loving environment to think, to talk, to feel, and pray together. Find compassion, rest, and peace… at least for a time.

An Important Invitation from Fr. Jim

“The Pope is listening, and wants to hear from you… and I am also listening, and want to hear from you…”

Please come to a Listening Session!

The Pope has created an important space for all of our voices to be genuinely heard – please don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.

As Fr. Jim says, these sessions will not only serve the Synod on Synodality, but will also inform our collaborative pastoral planning…
