Following the example of Pope Francis, SJV parish is sponsoring a refugee family, who are learning how to adapt to their new country.

We are a welcoming, compassionate community and have been praying that “God has no body on earth but mine,” so let's get involved!

Our refugee family are very good people and doing their best here. They have a place to live, which we have furnished with furniture and housewares. They have a car.  One child is in preschool and the other will start preschool this summer. Both are fluent in English. Mom is now employed. Dad has had help in preparing a resume and has been very diligently searching for a job. He has a computer science degree and many years of professional IT experience; his specialty is setting up and troubleshooting computers and networks. Please contact Pat Schneider, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any job leads! Please pray for them, especially that he finds a good job.

Thank you.
