This course will take place in Paris, France and addresses the on-going global migration and refugee crisis readily documentable on the daily news and extensive policy debates at the local, national, and international levels. At present, the number of people that are on the move from their homeland as immigrants or refugees number over 50 million and are not confined to one region, ethnic, or a religious group but come from populations all over the globe. This course is open to alumni and friends of PSR. For more detailed info visit this page.

Contextual Learning at PSR and CLGS will again partner with CETLALIC, a language school with deep progressive roots and a passion for a liberating pedagogy. This two week immersion will include language study for ministry and will engage liberation theologies, base communities, women’s groups, LGBTQ communities, and social justice advocates. This immersion will now be offered each summer through partnerships with PSR, CLGS, Glide Church, and Cathedral of Hope. 2016 dates will correspond with Cuernavaca Pride.
