The St. Photios National Shrine is proud to announce the theme for its annual essay contest, reflecting on the welcoming of immigrants to this nation.

Many of those immigrants came to America through Ellis Island in New York City and would have  viewed the Statue of Liberty upon entering New York Harbor. There, at the pedestal of Lady  Liberty, is memorialized a plaque with the poem “The New Colossus,” by Emma Lazarus, with the  most famous line reading, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to  breathe free…”
