A Statement from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry Regarding Refugees

“I ask President Trump to continue the powerful work of our refugee resettlement program without interruption.”   The Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has released a statement in support of refugees and the work of Episcopal Migration Ministries.

Here is an excerpt of Bishop Curry’s statement:

As Christians, we are asked to pray: for our leaders, for our loved ones, for our enemies, and for those who are suffering. Our work does not end with prayer: we also offer assistance to those who are fleeing persecution. We find homes for those who have been forced out of their homes. We feed those who are hungry. The refugees who enter the United States do so after experiencing violence and persecution undeserved of any human being, and they come to the U.S. with hopes to build new lives.

Refugee resettlement is a form of ministry, and one that we, and many other churches and faith-based organizations, cherish. The work of Episcopal Migration Ministries is God’s work, and we show the face of God through the care and compassion in that work.
