St. Joseph’s Indian School in Chamberlain, SD, hosted the SCJ Schools in Collaboration Summer Institute June 10-13. This year’s group included and members of Holy Family and Sacred Heart schools from Mississippi, St. Joseph’s Indian School, and St. Martin’s of Tours school from Wisconsin.

Monday, June 20, is World Refugee Day. It is a moment that not only highlights the courage, perseverance and resilience shown by refugees in overcoming enormous odds to rebuild their lives but also calls each one of us to do whatever we can, wherever we are to recognize one another as sisters and brothers. Drawing on Pope Francis’s theme of the “Year of Mercy,” in which he challenges us to make this a time to overcome our indifference to the needs of others, the SCJ North American Immigration Committee has created a prayer service to help us reflect on the issues of migration.

“Fellowship, prayer and substance.” This is how organizers of the 2016 U.S. Province Assembly described the purpose of June 6-10 SCJ gathering held in Hales Corners, WI. No elections, no administrative business, no statements to produce, no agenda other than to come together, in fellowship, for prayer and substance.
