Who Are My Sisters and Brothers? A Catholic Educational Guide for Understanding and Welcoming Immigrants and Refugees.
United States Catholic Conference, Washington, DC.
This educational guide, designed for use in Catholic elementary and secondary schools, religious education programs at all grades, youth retreats, teacher training, or parent and adult sessions, places issues related to immigrants and refugees in a Catholic perspective. It offers some basic materials to use and adapt for children and adults to present Christ's view of migrant peoples as sisters and brothers regardless of color, culture, ethnicity, or national origin. Basic themes, emphasized at different levels in these curricula, explore the Catholic church as: (1) hospitable; (2) culturally rich and enriching; (3) caring; (4) prophetic; and (5) mission and evangelizing. Thirty-four lessons are presented for the different levels and settings. Supplementary material provides approaches for parent and adult sessions and youth retreats. Twenty-four appendixes provide supplemental information. Handouts and reproduction masters are included in the lesson plans. (SLD)
