THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING
The Catholic Coalition for Immigrants & Refugees
“In the Church, no one is a stranger, and the Church is not foreign to anyone, anywhere.”    (Pope Saint John Paul II)
“Migrants trust that they will encounter acceptance, solidarity, and hope, that they will meet people who … are open to sharing humanly and materially with the needy and disadvantaged.”    (Pope Francis)
As concerned Catholics and other people of good will who are inspired by the Church’s social teaching, we look to amplify our positive impact upon local immigrant and refugee communities, and raise awareness and compassion by educating the Catholic community about their plight and needs through a more effective witness of faith in action. Immigrants and refugees are newcomers to our country, usually fleeing from political or religious persecution, war or famine, or extreme poverty. They are our brothers and sisters, seeking a safe haven, a new place to call home. The Catholic Coalition for Immigrants & Refugees is heeding the call of Pope Francis by welcoming these newcomers and helping them in whatever way possible.
We look to provide newcomers with the resources they need to start a new life in the United States, by helping them find a home, a job, education for their children, and access to medical and social services.
Will you stand with us in welcoming newcomers?
