The Ministry with and for Migrants is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of immigration and the impact on individuals and their families.
Join us as we discern our steps to deepen our understanding, connect with families and build relationships with others who may have experienced a different journey than ourselves! We seek to act and respond with and in support of migrant and refugee communities. All are welcome!

Follow Jesus - Serve Others
Our ministry strives to see and be Jesus to others by approaching each person as another human being regardless of nationality, race, socio-economic class, lifestyle, sexual orientation or immigration status.
Towards An Ever Wider WE! ~ Pope Francis.
With a focus on refugees and migrants, our ministry follows Jesus by seeing EVERY family as a "holy family" and responding in a loving, compassionate and supportive way. One humanity that knows no borders.
Reflecting on this Ministry
*As Pope Francis says, "We need to know in order to understand.... We need to be close in order to serve.... In order to be reconciled, we need to listen.... In order to grow, it is necessary to share....We need to be involved in order to promote. It is necessary to cooperate in order to build... Leaving no one excluded." - World Day of Migrants & Refugees, 2020
In the summer of 2022, through a grant from Our City of Nations (OCON), we hosted Building Bridges - Outdoor Fun for eight families from the Latino, Rohingya and Afghan communities. This was a tremendous opportunity for all of us to get to know each other, have some fun, laugh and enjoy the outdoors together! We became friends and our sense of community grew!
Tarjimly is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2017 in response to the Syrian refugee crisis and Muslim Ban where hundreds of people in need of interpreters were stranded at airports across America. The company connects people in need with a translator for 120+ languages using a global translator community and AI-enabled mobile app. 'Tarjimly' means "translate for me" in Arabic. The word embodies the communities they strive to support.
