Refugee Day & Juneteenth Prayer Vigil

Although there were some drops, more than some drops, of rain that Saturday in June 2o21, close to 60 people gathered on the Motherhouse lawn to recall the plight of our refugees and of our black sisters and brothers in honor of National Refugee Day and Juneteenth. We came together to pray, to reflect and to learn of their experiences. Thanks to those who were present and all who gave assistance to facilitate the event. Gratitude also is extended to Felipe Reyes, Sister Flor de Maria Buruca and Sister Selena Wilson for sharing their stories and experiences. We left the event with a greater appreciation of the difficult journeys some people have undertaken. To see photos from the event, click here.
