Catholic Ethics and Migration

Tuesday, November 7, 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Corcoran Commons, Heights Room, Chestnut Hill Campus


The rhetoric and lenses that shape the quickly shifting immigration debate can distort complex realities and become surrogates for other cultural and political concerns. Resources from Scripture and Catholic Social Teaching challenge the dominant, instrumentalist frameworks and offer a counternarrative of kinship with moral, spiritual, and policy implications.


Presented by:

Dr. Kristin E. Heyer, professor of theological ethics
Boston College Department of Theology


Sponsored by the School of Theology and Ministry 
and the Boston College Theology Department
