Catholic Charities and the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Office of Faith Formation will offer “Welcome the Stranger: Catholic Social Teaching and Immigration” June 26 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Flaget Center, 1935 Lewiston Drive.
The workshop is a follow-up to the Share the Journey Immigration Legal Workshop which took place in March, said Deacon Lucio Caruso of Catholic Charities.
The latest event aims to educate the faith community in two areas — what the church and Scripture teach about immigration and the subject of immigration law, he said.
A better understanding of the realities of immigration is important now more than ever, because of the political climate surrounding the issue, said Deacon Caruso.
