WHY WELCOME THE STRANGER?

“I was a stranger and you welcomed me; naked and you clothed me.”
Matthew 25:35-40

The Gospel message of Jesus Christ inspires us to welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, feed the poor.

Today, over 65 million men women and children, many of them are Christians and Catholics, are fleeing oppression, poverty, torture, political unrest and war. Our response is to welcome refugees and provide them with the opportunity to live and flourish; free and unadulterated by the chains of dictators and despots.
