This Easter, we invite you to celebrate EMM’s ministry of bringing hope and new life to refugees by making a donation! No gift is too small, and all are put to use to welcome our newest neighbors. Visit www.episcopalmigrationministries.org/give or text HOMETOWN to 51555.
If you make a gift, tell us why! Around St. Patrick’s Day, a supporter of EMM posted on Facebook that she was making a donation to EMM in honor of her Irish immigrant ancestors, who faced great hardship and discrimination when they were newcomers to this country. Her story illustrated just how much EMM’s work connects to the American story, and to so many of our own individual family stories.
Our theme song was composed and recorded by Abraham Mwinda Ikando. Find his music at www.abrahammwindamusic.com
