Fr. Sean Carroll, SJ, Brings Updates of the Kino Border to Charlotte, NC

Fr. Sean Carroll, SJ, executive director of the Kino Border Initiative (KBI), carries with him the blessings and the brokenness of many who cross the U.S.-Mexico border when he shares the realities of his ministry. Visiting St. Peter Catholic Church in Charlotte, NC, Fr. Carroll joined his fellow Jesuits, St. Peter Pastor, Fr. James Shea, SJ, and Parochial Vicar, John Michalowski, SJ, on June 17 & 18 to celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ. In his remarks to the parish, Fr. Carroll reflected how the work of each person with KBI is an expression of being taken, blessed, broken and shared.

Earlier in the week,  Fr. Carroll presented the impact of U.S. immigration, detention and deportation policies on the U.S.- Mexico border to a group of parishioners for St Peter's Justice on Tap at a local neighborhood grille. Participants engaged with questions about the current  practices of both countries regarding migrants and deportees. St Peter has sent a delegation to KBI in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico and plans to send more groups in the future. Locally, the parish has formed teams to accompany and mentor migrants and refugees in the Charlotte area.
