Cranaleith Spiritual Center, a nonprofit conference and retreat center in Northeast Philadelphia, will offer a morning of reflection on a pressing and timely topic: forced migration.
On Saturday, Feb. 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Maureen McCullough and Ella Guimond of Catholic Relief Services’ Northeast Mid-Atlantic Regional team will use the story of the good Samaritan and Pope Francis’ recent encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, as a framework to outline the issue of forced migration from a Catholic social justice perspective.
Participants on the Zoom platform will be encouraged to discuss ways to change the rhetoric swirling around the issue of forced migration, opening their hearts to conversion and understanding. This program will include time to listen, reflect and discuss the issue as a group.
The program fee is $30, and scholarships are available because everyone is welcome at Cranaleith.
