National Migration Week - Creating a Culture of Encounter
National Migration Week begins today. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has set this week aside as an opportunity to learn more about and pray for migrants and the many difficult realities they face, always keeping in mind that Christ, to, was a migrant. To learn more, visit the the USCCB's page on Migration Week. The Archdiocese of Seattle also has Migration Week Resources available here.
MERCIFUL AND LOVING FATHER,
We beseech you, open our hearts
so that we may provide hospitality and refuge
to migrants who are lonely, afraid,
and far from their homes.
Give us the courage to welcome every stranger
as Christ in our midst,
to invite them into our communities
as a demonstration of Christ’s love for us.
We pray that when we encounter the other,
we see in her the face of your Son,
when we meet a stranger,
that we take his hand in welcome.
Help us to live in solidarity with one another,
to seek justice for those who are persecuted
and comfort for those who are suffering.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
St. Theresa's is hosting gatherings for people interested in social time,
with games available for those who are interested.
We will gather in the Overflow Room from 1 p.m.-3p.m.
