Migration Letter to Bishops

June 17, 2021
Dear Cardinal Cabrera López, Archbishop Gómez, Archbishop Gonzalo de Villa y Vásquez, Archbishop Garachana Pérez and Archbishop Escobar Alas,

We are Catholic organizations from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America, working to protect migrants and improve life in the communities they are fleeing. We write to urge you to hear the cries of our brothers and sisters on the move and respond with bold leadership. This summer and fall, we have the best opportunity in a generation to make progress on core Catholic migration priorities. We need your pastoral and moral leadership to meet this moment.

The promise by a new U.S. Administration to address the root causes of migration, treat migrants humanely, and put immigrants who’ve lived in the U.S. for years, and in many cases decades, on a path to citizenship is a unique opportunity to relieve pain and suffering too long endured. This moment requires a whole Church response that is regional, united, and robust.

News from Visitation Province (Canada)

How delightful it was to gather together outside on our patio to celebrate a new moment. After a long winter of quarantine and restrictions we happily shared a McDonald’s moment prepared by our co-coordinator, Lina. It was a wonderful moment to share new life and new hope (Yes, fierce hope!) plus a few good laughs.

As we journey into the coming summer months, we continue to carry you all in our heart-thoughts and prayer. A very special remembrance in prayer for our delegates to provincial and congregation chapters. We are prayer partners with you as you continue in all of our names to discern and make decisions ‘for the life of the world.’ Thank you!

Warm summer blessings,

The sisters of Mary of Peace community Résidence Bon-Secours, Montreal
