Principle 19 – Love the Stranger

The nineteenth guiding principle of our document Love the Stranger


Migration enriches our culture – we must welcome migrants and refugees so that they can live fulfilled lives in their new country.

Intercessory Prayer

God our refuge, fill our hearts with your love
and move us to reach out to all of those who are in need
so that everyone may have a safe and welcoming place to live
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
