Parishes Organized to Welcome Refugees (POWR) to aid in the Syrian Refugee Crisis (Monthly)

$
  Monthly
The political and humanitarian crisis in Syria continues to be of serious concern for the Catholic Church and the bishops of the United States. In the past five years, at least four million Syrians have fled their country as a consequence of the civil war and the rise of ISIS. Most have fled to surrounding countries, and many others have moved on to Europe with the hope of finding a place of peace and safety. Reflecting Christ’s call to welcome the stranger, it is imperative that we help to provide a place of welcome to vulnerable refugee populations, with particular attention given to the ongoing crisis in Syria.
The Parishes Organized to Welcome Refugees (POWR) program strengthens the dioceses and parishes’ ability to welcome refugees from all over the world. Its main focus is to encourage parishes to make an ongoing and organized commitment to working with refugees in partnership with the resettlement program of the diocese. In response to the growing crisis, the POWR program will assist in the resettlement of Syrian refugees entering into the United States in search of protection. Please consider helping POWR during this needed time. Your support will provide long-term assistance locally to all refugees, like the Syrian refugees, by giving them the vital resources they need to keep safe, healthy, and secure.
