Presenter: Daniel Corrou, S.J., and Thomas D. Stegman, S.J.
As the 40th anniversary of Jesuit Refugee Services approaches, we offer this conversation between Thomas D. Stegman, SJ, Dean of the School of Theology and Ministry at Boston College, and Daniel Corrou, SJ, Regional Director for Jesuit Refugee Service in the Middle East and North Africa. Based out of Beirut, Fr. Corrou’s team oversees JRS’s ministry and accompaniment in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria, offering an array of services, including education, psychosocial support, emergency assistance, and advocacy for refugee rights. Accompanying refugees amid a global pandemic highlights the multiple traumas they face. In a time of political division and public health distancing, we ask: how do we form communities of reconciliation?
