They were called to serve and offer kindness and hope at a half-way warehouse in El Paso, Texas. These four Sisters travelled to accompany women, men, and children fleeing oppression and danger in their homelands. Hear their experiences first hand as they guide us through a morning of contemplation that compels us to action.

“Is it near or far? they ask about the places they will go in the United States; most have little context for understanding this strange new country and yet they push on humbly and courageously.” ~Joyce Ann Hertzig, OP
