This webinar by Donald Kerwin, Executive Director for the Center for Migration Studies (CMS), was devoted to a discussion of Catholic teaching on migrants, refugees, and newcomers. Mr. Kerwin discussed the Biblical touchstones of Catholic teaching on migrant and refugees, key principals that guide the Church’s analysis of this timeless issue, recent developments in US immigration policy and refugee protection, and how the Catholic community views and can respond to them. The presentation drew on CMS’s scholarship and research.
