With the promise of the New Year comes National Migration Week 2015, celebrated by the Catholic Church January 4-10. The theme is “We Are One Family Under God,” and there is no better time to extend goodwill, so abundantly shared with loved ones during the holidays, to our migrant brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Integration happens most successfully at the local level. Positive day to day interactions between local residents encourage mutual understanding of different perspectives and lead to increased respect amongst all those calling a community home. Creating an atmosphere of respect for the thoughts and opinions of all residents requires thoughtful and purposeful effort. Here are several ideas that adult members of a community can try when working to create a welcoming place for all.


Dear brothers and sisters of CLINIC,

As we enter close now to the celebration of the birth of Christ, the Church’s Liturgy prays every night the prophetic and powerful “O Antiphons” which sing out the Messianic titles of the Lord rooted in the prophecies of the Old Testament.  In these same days, there is another powerful event happening in our midst:  “Las Posadas."

Since its inception, the program has offered English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes. Hogar began offering citizenship test preparation classes in the mid 1990s. Hogar responds to the Catholic Church’s call for social justice by welcoming immigrants regardless of their ethnicity, religion, nationality, or ability to pay.
