The CCVI Migrant, Immigrant, and Refugee Network in order to promote educational opportunities that broaden current and historical perspectives of the global migration crisis and the people impacted by movement and upheaval, presents a series of Webinars entitled: “Globalizing Compassion, Cooperation and Solidarity”.
“A Heart Open to the Whole World,” is the first webinar focusing on Pope Francis’ teaching on immigration on migration at Fratelli Tutti. This event will have the participation of the Archbishop Gustavo García Siller of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Laura Vargas from Peru, and our sisters Teresa Maya and Cecilia Zavala. This event will be on February 24th at 6:00-7:30 p.m. CST (San Antonio, Tx.) and we will have English and Spanish interpretation.
