Tenth Sunday after Pentecost: The Episcopal Church responds to border crisis

August 17, 2014

“The influx of vulnerable people from Central America, including unaccompanied minors as well as mothers with children, continues to challenge the United States to respond compassionately. Like Sudanese or Syrian refugees, these people are fleeing hunger, violence, and the fear of rape, murder, and enslavement. The violence in Central America has escalated significantly in recent months, particularly as a result of gangs and trafficking in drugs and human beings. These people are literally fleeing for their lives.”
— Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, addressing the crisis of unaccompanied children at the U.S. border, July 10, 2014
