ASSUMPTION COLLEGE CAMPUS MINISTRY - MIGRATION FOCUS OF 2017 LENTEN JOURNEY

Assumption College

WORCESTER, MA (March 8, 2017)—In celebration of the College’s partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS), a global humanitarian organization, Assumption College’s Office of Campus Ministry will focus on the theme of migration during this Lenten season. Opportunities to learn about Catholic teaching on migration, to pray for migrants, and advocate on behalf of migrants will be made available through a number of events:

  • Screening of The Vigil
    Tuesday, March 21, 7-9 p.m.
    Room 112 (Alden Trust Auditorium), Kennedy Hall

The Vigil is told from the viewpoint of a female immigrant, Gina, and a small group of her fellow undocumented single mothers, Rosa and Maria, who live in fear of deportation in the state of Arizona. Unwilling to just merely survive, Gina becomes a leader of a vigil and her journey to create refuge for the immigrant community in the face of Arizona’s groundbreaking anti-immigration law takes her all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The filmmakers describe it as “a story of those who are not considered American, making American history.” Director Jenny Alexander and film advisor on immigration issues, Alexandra Piñeros Shields, will introduce the film and answer questions afterwards.

A candlelight prayer will follow the event at 9 p.m. in the Assumption College Chapel.
