Penn State University’s Berkey Creamery and “The CRISIS Survey: The Catholic Church’s Work with Immigrants in the United States in a Period of Crisis”

In this week’s episode of JustLove, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan talks about the Penn State University’s Berkey Creamery, the largest – and at 150 years one of the oldest – university creamery in the country, where the ice cream they make and sell help to support the teaching, research and outreach programs of the Department of Food Science at Penn State University. Monsignor also has a conversation with the Executive Director of the Center for Migration Studies on the report they issued earlier this month, “The CRISIS Survey: The Catholic Church’s Work with Immigrants in the United States in a Period of Crisis,” about the vital role Catholic intuitions played during the COVID pandemic when many immigrants were excluded from federal support.

James T. Brown is the Assistant Manager of Creamery Operations and the Sales and Marketing Manager for Pen State’s Berkey Creamery, where they make about 100 different flavors of ice cream. In today’s recording, Jim Brown talks about the operations and history of the Berkey Creamery, how proceeds from the Berkey Creamery help to support the teaching, research, and outreach programs of the Department of Food Science at Penn State University, and where listeners can go to purchase this ice cream and support the Berkey Creamery’s mission.

Donald Kerwin, Esq. is the Executive Director of the Center for Migration Studies, a think tank and educational institute devoted to the study of international migration, to the promotion of understanding between immigrants and receiving communities, and to public policies that safeguard the dignity and rights of migrants, refugees and newcomers. Don Kerwin shares with us a bit about the Center for Migration Studies report they issued earlier this month entitled “The CRISIS Survey: The Catholic Church’s Work with Immigrants in the United States in a Period of Crisis” about the vital role Catholic intuitions played during the COVID pandemic when many immigrants were excluded from federal support.
