As faith communities in the United States grow more diverse due, in large part, to immigration, increasing numbers of Catholic parishes are being “shared” by distinct cultural groups who retain their own ministries and styles of worship. Today, it is estimated that 6,300 parishes in the United States serve ethnically, linguistically and culturally diverse communities. Shared parishes are one of the few institutions in American society in which cultural groups maintain their own languages and customs, while still engaging in regular intercultural negotiations.  They are also increasingly changing the face of the Catholic Church in the United States.

In his book, The Shared Parish: Latinos, Anglos, and the Future of U.S. Catholicism (New York University Press 2014), Brett C. Hoover, Assistant Professor of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University, explores the shared parish through an in-depth ethnographic study of a Roman Catholic parish in a small Midwestern city that has been demographically transformed by Mexican immigration in recent decades. Through his depiction of shared parish life, Hoover outlines new ways of imagining the U.S. Catholic parish.  He argues that the parish must be conceived as a congregation and part of a centralized system, and as one piece in a complex social ecology. The Shared Parish also posits that the search for identity and adequate intercultural practice in such parishes might call for new approaches to cultural diversity in U.S. society.

On Thursday, February 19, 2015, the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) will host a dialogue with Professor Hoover to discuss the impact of immigration on U.S. Catholic institutions and the effect of shared parish communities on immigrant integration, multiculturalism, and the future of the Catholic faith.  Professor Hoover’s presentation will be followed by short responses by Maria del Mar Muñoz-Visoso, Executive Director of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Secretariat for Cultural Diversity in the Church, and Fr. Walter Tonelotto, Pastor of Our Lady of Pompeii Church in New York City.  The dialogue will be moderated by Donald Kerwin, CMS Executive Director.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Center for Migration Studies. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

The use of detention as a tool of immigration control has become a global phenomenon.  On Monday, July 21, 2014, the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) will host a dialogue examining the global expansion of immigration-related detention practices. Featured panelist Michael Flynn, Founder and Project Manager of the Global Detention Project, will discuss the global spread of detention and the externalization of immigration enforcement policies over the last 30 years. Dora Schriro, Commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection with the State of Connecticut, will respond to Mr. Flynn’s presentation.  Ms. Schriro was Special Advisor to former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano on Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Detention and Removal, and was the founding Director of the Office of Detention Policy and Planning for DHS.  She will discuss US detention policies and practices in more depth.  Donald Kerwin, CMS’s Executive Director, will moderate the session.

Journal On Migration and Human Security
Book Review: Mrs. Shipley’s Ghost: The Right to Travel and Terrorist Watchlists (by Jeffrey Kahn, University of Michigan Press, 2013)

Since 9/11, migration-related security measures, including a growing reliance on watch-lists, have limited the right to travel. The book examines the legal and policy questions raised by prohibitions on travel by US citizens.

The Center for Migration Studies (CMS) is an educational institute/think tank devoted to the study of US and international migration
Introduction

The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is an educational institute/think tank devoted to the study of international migration, to the promotion of understanding between immigrants and receiving communities, and to public policies that safeguard the dignity and rights of migrants, refugees and newcomers. CMS was established in 1964 and formally incorporated in 1969 by the Congregation of the Missionaries of St. Charles, Scalabrinians, an international community of Catholic priests, nuns and lay people dedicated to serving migrants and refugees. CMS is a member of the Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN), a global network of more than 270 entities that provide services to migrants, including shelters along migrant corridors and welcoming (integration) centers in receiving communities.

CMS operates as a legally distinct, tax-exempt agency, with an independent board of trustees. It carries out its mission in five principal ways:

• Publication of journals (including the International Migration Review and the Journal on Migration and Human Security), books, conference proceedings and other papers.
• Sponsorship of conferences, meetings, briefings, symposia and dialogues.
• Production of evidence-based, policy-relevant research.
• Provision of expert support to local, national and international institutions, particularly faith-based institutions.
• Maintenance of extensive archives on the history of immigration in the United States.

CMS works with policy-makers on international, regional, national and local levels; scholars and researchers; faith-based groups; non-governmental organizations; and other civil society organizations. CMS enjoys consultative status at the United Nations.
