SusanMary Weishar, Ph.D., Fellow and Migration Specialist at the Jesuit Social Research Institute, Loyola University New Orleans

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has asked that we open our hearts to those marginalized by fear and indifference, so they can "feel the warmth of our presence, our friendship, and our fraternity." One way that the Jesuit Social Research Institute at Loyola has been trying to live out  this call for mercy is by organizing Catholic Teach-Ins on Migration, where members of a Catholic parish or school meet, listen to, and pray with undocumented immigrant members of the community. At the January 21 LIM webinar, JSRI Migration Specialist Sue Weishar will discuss how to organize a Catholic Teach-In on Migration in your faith community and the powerful experiences of compassion and conversion she has witnessed at these encounters.
