World Humanitarian Day 2016

“My first assignment after ordination was to a small parish in East Los Angeles made up of Spanish- speaking migrants and refugees. The people there taught me how to be a priest. Ever since then, the needs and hopes of people on the move have been part of my horizon, and I’m grateful to be part of JRS as we accompany, serve and advocate for and with our forcibly displaced sisters and brothers around the world.”

-Tom Smolich SJ, JRS International Director
