Catholic Charities of Southern Minnesota is offering a retreat on immigration Saturday, Oct. 28, at St. Charles Borromeo in St Charles. The day begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 4:30 p.m.

“This event is an opportunity for the Hispanic and long-term Minnesota residents to ‘encounter’ each other as the face of Christ to one another,” says a news release from the charitable organization that serves the 20 southernmost counties in the state. “An important element of this retreat will be the use of microphones that will allow participants to have instant translation of talks that will be alternately in English and Spanish.  This is a chance for us to put a human face to the immigration issue.”
