Support for Refugees and People Seeking Asylum

If you are seeking assistance as an asylum seeker or refugee, the church is here to help you with various forms of support. We can provide financial aid, material assistance, and help finding employment opportunities. Many generous parishioners regularly contribute to collections and fundraising efforts that go towards different aspects of support, such as covering rent, utilities, or living expenses. Most parishes have a social justice committee to help newcomers in the local community. Should you need some help, please contact your local church or the services we have listed below:

Micah 6:8
