They Come Back Singing: Caring for Sudanese Refugees
Tuesday, November 11, Noon - 1:30pm, with luncheon
A presentation by Gary Smith, S.J., who has recently returned from 12 years serving the poor in African refugee camps, where he worked with both Catholic and Muslim refugees from the Sudan and other East African countries. His book, They Come Back Singing: Finding God with the Refugees, is based on his experiences of years with Jesuit Refugee Services, and is filled with human stories of beauty that were found in the midst of every form of poverty.
Fr. Smith worked with several young students while he was at Kakuma Refugee camp, including Luul, a Muslim from Somalia. (The photo)
“The Spirit works in all cultures, and the Church discovers who she is in the presence of the poor.” (Gary Smith, S.J.)
