The Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies and the Trans-Border Institute welcomes His Excellency, Archbishop Agostino Marchetto, J.C.D. Apostolic Nuncio. Secretary of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerants

The Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies and the Trans-Border Institute will sponsor a major international conference on April 15-16, 2009, to consider the connections between migration, religious experience, and national identification. This conference will provide a unique opportunity to examine migration, religion, an national identity in historical and comparative perspective, as well as the efforts of different faith communities to grapple with the challenges of contemporary immigration and assimilation. In advance of the conference, Archbishop Agostino Marchetto will offer his reflections on these important issues.”
