Our next Prayer to Action Series is:
Welcoming The Stranger
An evening of prayer, song, scripture and learning about how the Catholic Church is relevant in today's immigration discussions.
It will be held on Tuesday, February 19th @ 7:00 PM.
We will gather to pray for our immigrant brothers and sister, learn what the Church teaches about our responsibility to welcome and protect them, and reflect on our baptismal call to love God and neighbor by standing in solidarity with them.
Catalina Morales, a St. Odilia parishioner who works for Isaiah Minnesota and is a DACA recipient, will be our speaker. Catalina was raised in Waukegan, IL and immigrated to the US from Mexico with her parents and two older sisters. Catalina has lived in the US since 1993 and was undocumented until she was granted DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status in 2013. Last year, she led the successful campaign to create an immigrant legal defense fund in Hennepin County. She is currently enrolled in St. Thomas University studying Theology. Catalina's work is about standing at the intersection of faith and justice, and inviting people of faith across Minnesota to lead with her for immigrant justice.
We would love to have you join us and invite your friends!
