Immigrants & Refugees

BANNER FINAL W WORDS DOUBLE (2) croppedEvery six years we, the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood, hold an extended meeting known as a General Chapter.  The purpose of the Chapter is to elect leadership and to set direction for the next six-year period.   The most recent Chapter was held in March-April 2016, and it identified priorities for 2016-2022.  The Future Direction Statement  from the 2016 Chapter called us “to take bold action.” 

Following the Chapter, the Sisters and Partners in Mission continued in conversation to determine what this bold action might be.  We surfaced fourteen possible areas for action and, after much prayer, research and discussion, we decided to make immigrants and refugees the focal point of our efforts.  These efforts will include accompaniment, advocacy, education and prayer.

Among those whom I constantly keep in my thoughts and prayers,
I would once again mention the over 250 million migrants worldwide, of whom 22.5 million are refugees. – 
Pope Francis, Message for 51st World Day of Peace, January 2018
