The Australian Catholic Migrant and Refugee Office has a large resource of Catholic teaching on migrants and refugees from Popes and Bishops. Recently the Australian Office issued a phamplet entitled, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me (Matthew 25:35), What the Catholic Church Teachese on Asylum and Migration." I speaks of the centrality of human dignity when considering how refugees are treated:  "The Catholic Church teaches that the demands of human dignity always come before the national interest."

Copies of the pamphlet are available from the Parish Office or can be downloaded on this link: Pamphlet as pdf file.
