How Do I Use . . .
Read "The Special Needs of Youth" (pages 47-49). How is your school an "instrument of evangelization for others"?
What kind of work is needed to support immigrants, migrants, and refugees throughout the country and in your community?
Study the brochure "Ideas for Schools, Religious Education, and Youth Programs" from the Welcoming the Stranger Kit. Pick out one activity to do with your class within the next month.
Read in Genesis
about Abraham, the common patriarch of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
Invite leaders of the Muslim, Jewish, and other Christian communities to speak to your class or school, and discuss the challenges of Welcoming the Stranger Among Us
, especially when the "stranger" is our neighbor, friend, or colleague.
