Migration Committee meets in Hales Corners

On September 23/24 members of the North American Migration Committee met at the US Provincial Conference in Hales Corners, Wisconsin. The committee, whose members include SCJs and lay persons from both the Canadian Region and United States Province, has developed a wide variety of educational efforts and actions in response to what refugees and migrants are experiencing. The group is currently developing a presentation on human trafficking. Being an international, intercultural, intergenerational committee, lots of different perspectives, experiences and ideas surfaced as to how to join with members of the local SCJ communities in North America to respond to the pressing needs of migrants and refugees. Members of the Migration Committee include Fr. Jan de Jong, Mark Peters, Fr. Peter McKenna, Fr. Tony Russo, Lily Ooi, Br. Diego Diaz and Fr. Richard MacDonald. [Fr.
