How does one build a COMMUNITY of WELCOME? How do we share as ONE community when we are of so many diverse beliefs? These were the focused thoughts of several representatives from different faiths who shared their answers at the 4th Annual Interfaith Service for Immigration held at St. Viator Church in Chicago to culminate the celebration of National Migration Week.
Mother Cabrini once said, “The more the fear of God animates the citizens of a country, the greater and the more respected will the nation be.”
With the difficulties in our country in the minds of many, during the reception following, Cabrini Retreat Center Director Nancy Golen and Sr. Cathy Fedewa, CSFN, heard many of the participants expressing their concerns about this climate and how we as individuals can address this.
Inspired by all, speakers and participants alike, we trust that many present, went forth and considered what small measure they could take to make a change.
