University of Dallas, Church of the Incarnation  

Millions of immigrants from various parts of the world are renewing and redefining the core of the American Catholic experience. Immigrants constitute about a quarter of U.S. Catholic population. We live in a complex sociopolitical climate in which frequent anti-immigrant and racist sentiments prevent many from affirming the inherent dignity of every person among us. This lecture is an invitation to reassess what it means to be Catholic today in our country and a call to action to confront dangerous biases that undermine our shared existence as church and society.

This lecture is open to the wider Dallas community. All are welcome.
