Social Outreach, Faith Formation, Catholic Charities, the Diocese of San Diego and Catholic Relief Services are excited to participate in the global campaign called “Share the Journey” launched by Pope Francis. The goals are to support immigrants around the world, to dispel fear of newcomers and to raise awareness of why so many people are compelled to leave their homes at this time. Throughout its modern history, immigrants from many countries have settled in our region, toiling day in and day out to build it into one of the great places in the world to live.

Join us on Saturday, November 10th, 2018 for our Share the Journey Pilgrimage.
