Welcoming the Immigrant - volunteers to work with refugees in El Paso, Texas

Sister Barbara Kuper, PHJC and Sister Kathleen Quinn, PHJC

The Leadership Conference for Women Religious (LCWR) placed a call for volunteers to work with refugees in El Paso, Texas. Sister Barbara Kuper, PHJC and Sister Kathleen Quinn, PHJC have responded to the invitation and are serving there from January 3 – February 3, 2015.

Sr. Kathleen wrote: Our main desire in volunteering to join others in El Paso was twofold. We wanted to experience at the ground level what the new immigrant was challenged with and to be of assistance in serving their needs. We had some idea of how our services could benefit their situation, but we knew we had much to learn.
