On a recent immersion trip to the U.S./Mexico border, a team of Basilica parishioners learned first hand about the realities of life in the shadows for those crossing our border seeking opportunity. Hear about their experiences in the Arizona desert and Nogales, Mexico. Parishioners share the stories about what they saw, who they met, and what they learned in a short presentation at 11:00 am on June 12.
Faced with fighting and uncontrolled violence, men, women and children are choosing to flee their homes in Central America only to face new risks as they attempt to cross the desert and the border. If they make it, they face new dangers of deportation and forced family separations. What does our faith call us to do?
