Refugee Sponsorship

The Presbytery of Seaway-Glengarry has decided to sponsor a refugee family. To that end a Refugee sponsorship committee has been formed. They have asked each pastoral charge to name a representative. garnet Thompson form Morewood has agreed to e our representative. The cost to sponsor a family is approximately $30,000. Support for the programme will be by freewill donations through our local churches to the Presbytery. Until our application is completed we have no details on the family that we might receive or when they might arrive.
