Thursday, January 11th
6:30 – 8:00 PM in the Francis Room

Fr. Julian Jagudilla, O.F.M., Director of the Migrant Center at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, will speak about the plight of immigrants and the human and societal costs of detention and deportation of undocumented persons. He will also speak of the work of the Migrant Center and the detention center visits that he has been organizing to visit detained people. Detained people have minimal contact with the outside world including family and friends and often do not have legal counsel.

The Young Adult Ministry is hosting this lecture which is open to the parish. Those interested in attending the lecture are also invited to stay for a brief training session offered at the end of the discussion for anyone interested in visiting a detention center with the Migrant Center and the Young Adult Ministry in the future. The Young Adult Ministry is committed to supporting the Migrant Center and its efforts of promoting the human dignity and welfare of immigrants and migrants in our community.

Free and Open to the Public
