Kinship Across Borders: Catholic Ethics and Migration

Tuesday, November 7, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

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.

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