“A Christian Response to the Refugee Crisis: – a conversation with #TomDenton about the present crisis and the work of Hospitality House Refugee Ministry”. Sunday, May 7, 9:00 a.m., Mr. Tom Denton, Executive Director, #HospitalityHouse, will be with us to bring us up to date on this critical ministry in which we share. There will be time for questions and conversation. Please come and join us, and stay for worship after. All welcome.
#HospitalityHouseRefugeeMinistry (#HHRM) is a non-profit organization, and has for many years been Winnipeg’s leading sponsor of #refugees. Thousands have been sponsored from appalling refugee circumstances, into new hope and productive lives in Canada.
They continue to flood into our city, and while caring families look after many, others must look to the support of Hospitality House to survive their first year here. Several parishes and individual donors have generously supported the work over the years, but the needs continue to be great, because the refugees keep arriving. Hospitality House, the building, is owned by the Anglican Cathedral Parish of St. John, and is on Cathedral property, beside the Churchyard. The only other staff person, Karin Gordon, is resident in the House, and does amazing work. Jay Dyck is our member of the HHRM Board, and an enthusiastic volunteer and supporter. Thanks, Jay, and also Vic Janzen, for your ongoing energy and commitment!
