The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Diocesan Day on Immigration

Amid all of the public turmoil about immigration, how do Christians respond in a way that allows them to live into their baptismal promise to respect the dignity of all persons and the imperative from Jesus to love our neighbor as ourselves?

That is one of many questions participants will wrestle with during a discussion Wednesday, August 30 from 1–3 p.m. in Child Hall. The session is free and open to all; it will also be streamed live at

The event will include presentations by priests and Christian lay leaders from the Atlanta area actively involved in responding to the needs of our immigrant neighbors. Bishop Robert Wright of the Diocese of Atlanta and Bishop Jose McLoughlin of the Diocese of Western North Carolina will provide theological guidance and practical ways Christians can respond to this hotly debated issue. There will also be information on accessing resources for immigrants and how people of faith can best use those resources.
