Our Lady of Guadalupe Immigrant Ministry is excited to host Professor Catherine Punsalan-Manlimos, PhD from the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture at Seattle University on Thursday, February 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the School Hall.

Together, we will explore our collective memory with regards to our immigration history. Most of us in the U.S. today are either immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. With the exception of our Native American brothers and sisters and the descendants of enslaved free peoples from Africa, many of us or our forebears immigrated to this country seeking a better future and freedom from persecution, violence, or poverty. Reflecting on the history of U.S. immigration in light of Catholic Social Traditions can remind us why fighting for policies that honor the dignity of our migrant brothers and sisters is a matter of faith and a matter of justice.
