We’re excited to bring you season two of Hometown. Each episode this season will include a Lenten reflection and a look into a new initiative from Episcopal Migration Ministries called Partners in Welcome. Partners in Welcome is a network of individuals, groups, and organizations coming together to build a community of support and solidarity for welcoming newcomers to our country.

This first episode includes a Lenten reflection from Lacy Broemel, Refugee and Immigration Policy Analyst in The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations, a brief update on the current state of the refugee resettlement program, why now is the time for the Partners in Welcome community, what participation in the Partners in Welcome community and online portal offers, and how you can join.

Follow EMM on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram where we are emmrefugees.
