Give the Gift of Welcome

As you learned during yesterday’s webinar, now more than ever, EMM and our local partners need your support.

Welcoming refugees has always been a ministry of the whole Church. We began this work more than 80 years ago, when local parishes collected donations to help refugees fleeing Nazi Europe.

We have met great need with great love before. And today, we must do so again. We must come together to stand for refugees.

This is our shared ministry. Together, we live into the biblical and holy call from Christ to “welcome the stranger” and “serve the least of these.” With your help, we will continue to welcome refugees to a place of safety and welcome.

Stand for welcome. Make your gift today.
