Who Are My Sisters and Brothers? ... Welcoming Immigrants and Refugees (HS, ADULT)
Today, more than a million immigrants and refugees continue to come to our shores each year. They come to reunite with family, to find suitable work, or to escape persecution and civil unrest. They arrive with the same dreams and fears as those who came before. This is the story of three Catholic parishes that have discovered in the newcomer the face of Christ: Notre Dame d'Haiti Parish in Miami, Florida; St. Willebrord Parish in Green Bay, Wisconsin; and St. Mary's Parish in Greensboro, North Carolina. This video gives an up-close and personal look at some of the human faces behind the immigration debate in our nation; and examines why people are on the move around the world, who these people are, and how our Church is reaching out to them. This video is a companion piece to two publications: Who Are My Sisters and Brothers? A Catholic Educational Guide for Understanding and Welcoming Immigrants and Refugees; and, Who Are My Sisters and Brothers? Reflections on Understanding and Welcoming Immigrants and Refugees.

Global Solidarity: A Framework for Parishes (ADULT)
Helping believers connect the Gospel to the world in which we live is one of the greatest challenges parishes face. As our world grows increasingly interdependent, the suffering of our sisters and brothers in other lands touches us more immediately and deeply. As members of a universal Church, Catholics are uniquely called to respond. The United States Bishops' statement, "Called to Global Solidarity: International Challenges for United States Parishes", offers support for United States parishes to act on the Gospel mandate to care for all of God's people, wherever they live. The Bishops recognize the challenges facing parishes trying to find effective ways to act on this message. They suggest that global solidarity can be woven into what parishes are already doing--into prayer, preaching, education, service, and action.
