Sponsoring a Refugee Family
St. Francis will be welcoming and sponsoring a refugee family who will be arriving in the US via the RDU airport on January 17, 2019. This Family of 7 (mom, dad and 5 children) are from the Democratic Republic of Congo. We will be collecting furniture and household items in the St. Francis of Assisi parking lot January 12 and 13. We will also be moving in and setting up their apartment and need volunteers.
For a list of items needed for the refugee family and to volunteer with this ministry, go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D45A4A92DAB9-welcome
