Episcopal Migration Ministries is hosting a one-hour free webinar, Love in Action: Episcopal Churches Welcome Refugees, on Wednesday, March 8 at 4 pm EST.
Participants will learn about community efforts born out of Episcopal congregations to create a welcoming community for refugees and immigrants. Three faith communities will share stories about their local community and interfaith initiatives to create a ministry of welcome. Presenters include West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry, Northern Virginia Friends of Refugees, and Refugee Community Center of Allentown, PA.
Registration is required and is available here.
The webinar will be available on-demand following the event. For background, it is recommended that participants view the recorded February 1 webinar, The Episcopal Church Welcomes Refugees, as a pre-requisite to the March 8 webinar. The recording is available here.
A limited number of slots will be available for deeper conversation after the webinar on how to cultivate a ministry of welcome in your faith community, offering virtual interactive round-table discussions with the three presenters. These round-table discussions will happen throughout the remainder of March. Additional information will be available.
