In the Bronx, Catholic Charities Found “Room in the Inn.”

We are all too familiar with the horrific crisis the U.S. government has created with its family separation policy at our southern border. Fortunately, we here in New York can be proud of the good work that Catholic Charities has done to address this very sad situation. On pages 1 and 2, we are pleased to be able to share excerpts of letters written by Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, Director of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, providing an eyewitness account of their efforts. We also include a prayer for migrants and an opportunity to take action on their behalf.

Protesting Nuclear Weapons at Büchel Air Base

On page 3, you’ll find an informative article by Anthony Donovan about his experience at a Peace Camp outside the Büchel Air Base in Germany where 20 U.S. B-61 H-Bombs are housed. You’ll also read an interesting comparison between U.S. and German handling of anti-nuclear protesters.

Reflections from a Kings Bay Plowshares Activist

Back at home, seven Plowshares activists conducted their own protest in Kings Bay, Georgia, where the U.S. maintains its largest naval base for nuclear weapon carrying submarines. Martha Hennessy, one of the Kings Bay Plowshares activists, wrote a powerful reflection on the action and all that motivated it spiritually, humanely, and politically. We offer it to you starting on page 5.

Farewell and Welcome!
