In this webinar Maryknoll Mission Educator, Brenda Noriega, will share her own migration story while inviting us to look at how we can accompany the migrants and refugees in our midst during this Advent Season. The Scriptures are clear and consistent in our calling to welcome the stranger and care for those on the margins. Immigrants and refugees continue being on the margins. The topic of migration is many times used for political gain. The media tells us who our immigrant brothers and sisters are and what they have to offer when they arrive.

We discuss how our faith helps us understand our call to act for climate justice and draw inspiration from the youth of the world that are demanding action and working to enact God’s love.
