In September 2017, Pope Francis launched a campaign, Share the Journey, inviting Catholics worldwide to “share the journey” with the millions of people across the globe who are fleeing poverty, oppression, war and disaster.  Just as Jesus journeyed to share the Gospel of love and sacrificed for others, Catholics in the U.S. are being called to share the physical and emotional journey with migrants and refugees by extending the hand of dignity, love, and support.

Each year, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Camden, resettles approximately 100 refugees from all over the globe. Join us on April 17, 2018, to respond to Pope Francis’ calling by learning more about the process of refugee resettlement, as well as listen to the stories of a refugee.  Through this panel discussion, you’ll be able to learn, ask questions, and create a culture of encounter here in Southern New Jersey.

The event is free, and all are welcomed to attend.
