Welcoming the Stranger: An Introduction to Missouri’s Immigrant Community

By Missouri Catholic Conference

Pope Francis has made the plight of refugees, migrants, and immigrants a focus of his pontificate, speaking frequently about the need for people of faith to offer assistance to those fleeing war, persecution and economic desperation.  In this podcast, we invite listeners to hear the stories of recent immigrants to the U.S. from Mexico and Central America through the work of Deacon Enrique Castro, director of Hispanic Ministry for the Diocese of Jefferson City, and Javier Orozco, executive director of Human Dignity and Intercultural Affairs for the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
