Stewards of Prophetic
Hopeful Intentional Action
People of faith united by a passion for justice, commitment to community and a practice of hope
On Saturday, September 8th, nearly 50 people Shared the Journey in a Pilgrimage from St. Joseph Catholic Church to St. Mary’s Parish. We walked in prayer, in support of our immigrant and refugee brothers and sisters all across the world. This Pilgrimage was initiated by SOPHIA with support and participation from the four Catholic churches in Waukesha, under a directive from Pope Francis to care for migrants across the globe.
Participants represented all four Catholic churches and many of the SOPHIA congregations. At St Mary's, more joined the pilgrims as we gathered in the community room in St. Mary's to hear Daryl Morin, a successful southeast Wisconsin business owner and a leader of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) speak of our current immigration situation illustrated with many examples of suffering by refugees and immigrants that Mr. Morin has witnessed in his extensive travels.
Participants took action by signing a petition demanding the legislators and public officials reunite the more than 500 immigrant children still separated from their parents in the United States.
