Pope Francis asks us to “Share the Journey” with migrants by listening to their stories, rather than treat them as mere numbers and statistics. The following events are presented with the hope of building understanding and to mark National Migration Week.

Enjoy a free screening of Breathe Free, a moving documentary that shares the stories of refugees and the art exhibit Columbus Crossing Borders inspired by those stories. Through the lens of filmmaker Doug Swift, we encounter those who fled war, violence and persecution. We witness the unease and fear surrounding U.S. border issues. Then we experience a visual tribute to the resilience, strength, and courage of migrants by 34 artists.
