On June 9th, Incarnate Word Foundation welcomed two students from the Universidad de Monterrey (UDEM) for a 6-week internship in St. Louis, MO. Paola & Andrea are working with St. Francis Community Services and the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis to assist in a summer camp for children of immigrant families.
In these challenging political times, let us remember the strength of life and community. In light of immigrants and refugees who seek to enter the United States, Incarnate Word Sisters, Staff, Associates, past and present students of UIW, people working as interns with Incarnate Word Foundation in St. Louis, and people associated with the CCVI Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation Committee gather with others holding up international law, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and principals of Catholic Social Teaching on the dignity of human beings. UIW students concerned about vulnerable children who are suffering have been gathering resources to help them.
