The Refugee Committee along with Holy Spirit Parish congregation is committed to time, prayer and financial support of a sponsored refugee family as they integrate into life in Canada. The parish commits to providing basic financial support for essential life-needs such as shelter and food for a period of 12 months or until the sponsored refugee(s) become self-sufficient.
The Refugee Committee is responsible for ensuring that the necessary funds are in place, along with setting up a basic household, paying or helping to pay bills, food, clothing and assisting the refuge families as they learn our language, culture and simple tasks such as bus and telephone use in a foreign country.
Ask if God is calling you to serve by joining the Refugee Committee. All new members are welcome!
