Immigration stories, display to be featured in Muscatine


Father Joseph Sia of the Davenport Diocese will share his immigration story, along with other immigrants, during a special event Aug. 19 in Muscatine. Fr. Sia is parochial vicar at Ss. Mary & Mathias Parish in Muscatine and St. Joseph Parish in Columbus Junction.

“Immigration stories” will begin at 7 p.m. at the Muscatine parish’s Gannon Hall. The parish invites people to come to learn and appreciate the gifts of the community’s diversity.

The story-telling is being held in conjunction with “Iowa: A State of Immigrants” traveling display on exhibit at Gannon Hall from Aug. 15-23. The display consists of four panels, each 7 feet tall and 36 inches wide, depicting the history and status of immigration in Iowa and throughout the United States.
