Catholic Social Teaching tells us that it is our “duty to welcome the foreigner out of charity and respect for the dignity and rights of the human person.” Through our “Campaign for Hospitality,” the Ignatian Solidarity Network joins Pope Francis, as well as our Jesuit and other Catholic partners in creating a culture that seeks to welcome, protect, promote, and integrate immigrant persons into our communities.

Calling all college students: Deepen your skills as advocates, organizers, and educators for ecological and migration justice.
Over 11 million people in the U.S. remain undocumented without a pathway to legal status, and many others face obstacles to attaining or maintaining legal status. Legislation like U.S. Citizenship Act (S.348), Dream Act (S.264), SECURE Act (S.306), and Citizenship for Essential Workers Act (S.747) will all create a pathway to citizenship and recognize them as the Americans they are.

SAINT LOUIS, MO
Join a community of parish ministers and parishioners seeking to build parish communities with vibrant faith-justice engagement. Participants will have opportunities to connect specifically around migration work during the gathering.
The Ignatian Solidarity Network partners with the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States’ Office of Justice and Ecology to co-coordinate a vibrant network of migration partners at Jesuit institutions.
The Jesuit Migration Network of the United States and Canada serves as a gathering place for individuals engaged in social and pastoral ministry to migrant people, grassroots advocacy, and teaching and researching related to migration. The migration network serves merely to create spaces for learning, networking, and collaboration—not as a stand-alone organization. It also provides a conduit for partnership with other Jesuit migration networks across the world, particularly the Red Jesuita Migrantes, a network coordinated by the Jesuit Conference of Latin America and the Caribbean.
If you are part of a Jesuit ministry and would like to become connected with the Jesuit Migration Network of the United States and Canada, please send an e-mail with your name, Jesuit ministry, role/title, and your contact info.
