Illinois bishops release statement on National Migration Week

The bishops of Illinois today released a statement on National Migration Week, beginning Jan. 8.

Like the Magi following the star to the hope, love and freedom embodied in the Holy Child, many immigrant families are on a similar journey as they seek hope in a new country.

During the next six months, each diocese in Illinois will share stories of immigrant families in their parishes and communities. These stories will be published in diocesan newspapers, bulletin inserts and on our website.
