The Pilgrim House of the Migrant “Brother Saint Peter” invites you to celebrate Migrant Week, from September 1st to 6th, with a series of initiatives that you can participate in online. “Like Jesus Christ, forced to flee. Welcome, protect, promote and integrate the internally displaced.”
During this week, as Fr. Armando Gonzalez, OFM informs us, “issues about the situation of migration in the area will be addressed, in our case the Northern Triangle (Honduras, Salvador and Guatemala). At the same time, testimonies about human rights violations will be heard. Our aim is to motivate people to show solidarity with migrants, as well as with the service that the institutions and volunteers of the houses and shelters provide “
