Immigration and Refugee Services
"You must not mistreat or oppress foreigners in any way. Remember, you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt." Exodus 22:21
With the many supportive services offered by Catholic Charities agencies, refugees and immigrants find homes and jobs. They learn how to speak English and how to navigate our U.S. systems. They go to school, launch businesses, build assets and become contributing citizens.
Share the Journey
On September 27, 2017, Pope Francis launched the “Share the Journey” campaign, which runs through September 2019. The focus is twofold: to raise awareness of displaced persons and to promote opportunities for migrants and communities to share stories and strengthen bonds. Catholic Charities agencies are engaged in the campaign not only by spreading the word but also by continuing to welcome newcomers and to help them settle in their new home.
