Check out the latest episode!

The Jesuit Border Podcast seeks to highlight the work that the Catholic Church and others are doing to address the needs of migrants along the US-Mexico border. Fr. Brian Strassburger and Fr. Louie Hotop are two Jesuit priests sent to the Diocese of Brownsville, TX, with the mandate to “read the reality and respond to it.” Part of that response is the Jesuit Border Podcast, in which they share stories and reflections about their own ministry among migrants in shelters and camps along the border, and they interview others who work with and advocate for migrants and refugees. After Fr. Louie received a new mission, Fr. Brian is now joined on the podcast by Joe Nolla, a Jesuit in formation for the priesthood.
