The Response of the Catholic Church in the United States to Immigrants and Refugees

This paper outlines the relationship between immigration in the U.S. and the Catholic Church.

It outlines several methods to aid in the pastoral care of immigrants: sensitivity and ability to alter ‘historic’ structures to permit the inclusion and participation of language-culture groups, creation of multilingual parish communities, and development leadership within immigrant groups.
