Lessons in Migration

Seeking asylum in the US

Across the U.S., sisters are helping asylum-seekers get a fresh start on life by providing shelter, legal aid, counseling and other support.

Seeking refuge in Uganda

Uganda quietly has absorbed a million South Sudanese refugees in the past few years. The country's liberal policy toward refugees stems from its recent tumultuous history.

Welcoming asylum-seekers in New Mexico

Change is in the air as a convent becomes a temporary shelter for asylum seekers. But deeper transformation happens as the migrants find rest, food and loving care.

Supporting asylum-seekers in Texas

A sister's efforts in working at the border with those seeking asylum helped her to clearly see the face of Jesus.

Sisters serve refugees in El Paso

We've heard about the border's "security and humanitarian crisis," but we did not see any drugs, guns or criminals. We saw parents bringing their children to the U.S. to live without fear.

Seeking refuge in Jordan

A planned refugee camp opened in Jordan in 2014 offers health care, education and food to encourage people fleeing from Syria's war not to settle permanently in urban areas — where 81% of them live today. Meanwhile, sisters help make connections to ease refugees' lives in the cities.
