by Samantha Schlageter (NHS'21)

On Monday, February 5, Dahlgren Chapel was full of laughter, heartache, and inspiration as a panel gathered to discuss the intersection of faith and public life at a Dahlgren Dialogue: "Sharing the Journey with Immigrants and Refugees." The audience heard from Cardinal Joseph Tobin, an ally for refugees and immigrants, and from two Georgetown students while John Carr, the director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown, moderated the discussion.
