National Migration Week January 2-8, 2011



Resources are now available for National Migration Week, which is January 2-8, 2011. Echoing Pope Benedict XVI’s 2011 World Day of Migrants and Refugees Message, the U.S. bishops will focus on migrant families for the 2011 Week. A poster, prayer card, and bulletin insert focusing on the economic crisis, underdevelopment, and the stresses and strains of migration on families, can be found here. The Florida Bishops released an statement on Immigration embargoed for release on January 2. Diocese of Orlando pastors received the statement via e-mail for distribution to parishioners through a bulletin announcement or insert.
