Many Faces in God’s House


As we welcome the stranger into our midst, we welcome Christ Himself, for in the face of the migrant, immigrant, and refugee, we must see the face of Christ. In the Gospel of Luke, this is made clear in the experience of the disciples on the road to Emmaus (Lk 24: 13-15), as they become witnesses to the Truth by welcoming the stranger, who is Christ.

The Racial Justice Commission of the Camden Diocese embarked on a year-long mission entitled, “Many Faces in God’s House” to foster appreciation for the cultural differences within our parishes and to encourage our church family to focus on God’s love for each of us and his call for each of us to love one another. Another goal is to share with the faithful of the Diocese Catholic social teaching on racial justice and immigration.
