Episcopal Migration Ministries, the refugee resettlement and immigration ministry of The Episcopal Church, has welcomed refugees into local congregations and communities since the 1930s. An integral part of The Episcopal Church branch of the Jesus Movement, Episcopal Migration Ministries has met the challenges of the last few years through strengthened partnerships, increased education and advocacy, and new ministry networks in support of asylum seekers and detained immigrants.

As we begin our work in 2021, Episcopal Migration Ministries extends welcome to our new President and new Congress. We look forward to working together to rebuild the U.S. refugee resettlement program, to offer safety and refuge to the children, women, and men forced to flee their homelands, and to uphold our nation’s highest values. Through the work of The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations we will continue to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform and policies that protect the human rights and safety of refugees.

In partnership with 12 local affiliates, congregations, volunteers, supporters, and advocates, Episcopal Migration Ministries will continue to welcome refugees, educate communities, and mobilize congregations to advocate for the protection and rights of all migrants.
