Plenary Panel II: Building a More Prophetic, Faithful, and Hopeful Church

Migrants, refugees, their families, and communities face multiple crises – historically high levels of forcible displacement, the inequalities and injustices exacerbated by the pandemic, the loss of life and opportunity, and exclusionary attitudes and policies. This panel spoke to these conditions and challenges and offered ideas and insights on how the Church can respond to the gifts and needs of migrants in a more prophetic, faithful, and hopeful way.
