Immigration Sunday Minnesota

Since 2009, the Catholic bishops of Minnesota have designated a Sunday in January, typically the Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord, as Immigration Sunday Minnesota. Immigration Sunday gives us an opportunity to learn more about the Church’s teaching on immigration and raise awareness about migration and immigration issues in Minnesota and beyond. The theme of this year’s Immigration Sunday MN is “Creating Communities of Encounter,” as we emphasize the need to respond to immigrants among us as people to be loved, not problems to be solved. January 8, 2017 is Immigration Sunday.
