Welcoming Refugees, Next Steps

Last evening, February 22, we gathered together to organize ourselves around several opportunities to show welcome and love to refugees.
If you were not able to be at the meeting, but want to get involved, don't worry!
Here are descriptions of the service opportunities, and contact information for the organizers of each effort.

Welcoming Refugees: Presentation at St. Mary's






On February 8 more than 70 people, both parishioners and visitors, attended a lively presentation about refugees and how to help  welcome them upon their arrival in the United States.

The discussion was led by Sue Horgan of Exodus World Service, a Christian advocacy group. Information about Exodus can be found here.
