The Social Action Day on October 30 began with an Upper School assembly on the topic of Migration. We were joined by Fr. Jacek Orzechowski, a Franciscan Friar of the Holy Name Province who serves as a minister for Catholic Charities in parish community organizing and advocacy. Fr. Jacek spoke with the Upper School girls about the connections between migration and climate change. His engaging presentation weaved personal anecdotes of his time in Mexico and Peru and first person accounts of migration due to climate change with a discussion about population statistics and Pope Francis's call for us to care for our common home in the Laudato Si.
