National Migration Week 2019 (January 6-12,2019)
The Hispanic Affairs Project celebrated the National Migration Week in Montrose the last Saturday 12th. Deacon Jose Pacheco, who is a HAP’s Board of Director and founding member of the organization facilitated a Vigil to celebrate what is a value in the Social Catholic Teaching, and what is a National Identity: The Migration.
“For nearly a half century, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week, which is an opportunity for the Church to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants, including immigrants, refugees, children, and victims and survivors of human trafficking. The theme for National Migration Week 2019, “Building Communities of Welcome” draws attention to the fact that each of our families have a migration story, some recent and others in the distant past. Regardless of where we are and where we came from, we remain part of the human family and are called to live in solidarity with one another”… Pepe’s script: https://hapgj.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/National-Migration-Week-Celebration-1.12.19.pdf
