|When Christ identified his family, he included all persons as his sisters and brothers. Thus, from its beginnings the Catholic Church, has promoted Christ’s teaching that we are all related as people of God, regardless of color, culture, immigration status, citizenship or ethnicity. This Guide is intended to help us as Catholic Christians to respond to the query, “Who are My Sisters and Brothers."
This Educational Guide is intended to help parents, educators and catechists to shape knowledge, attitudes, values and skills so that all will better understand and more warmly welcome immigrants and refugees.
The Guide is comprised of lesson plans and resources for Grades K-12 for use by Catholic school teachers, catechists and parents. The Guide also includes handouts and resources to be used by both teachers and students. Students can access these directly from the student section of the website. Teachers can link to the handouts and resources related to each lesson plan directly from the lesson plans.
“For I was a stranger and you welcomed me…” (Mt. 25)
