The State Department, despite recent decisions to drastically reduce the number of refugees allowed to be resettled in the U.S., has renewed contracts with all nine agencies that long have facilitated resettlements for the government, including Episcopal Migration Ministries, or EMM.
The decision, communicated to the agencies on Nov. 30, allows them to continue their resettlement activities for another year, though at a diminished capacity than under previous administrations. Read the story by clicking HERE.

Cristosal began in 2000 as a partnership between Episcopal clergy in the United States and El Salvador. It later became an independent nongovernmental organization with a $2 million budget that has grown from three employees in 2010 to more than 60 in three countries thanks to a U.S. International Aid and Development grant, though it still maintains close ties to the Episcopal Church. Episcopalians donate $350,000 to the organization’s annual budget. Read more about Crisostal by clicking HERE, and why we have migrant caravans in the first place.
Advent (Latin for "coming") is a season observed as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas as well as the return of Jesus at the second coming.
Fr. Paul is offering a Q&A each Sunday at 10 a.m. during the Advent season.
"Take your time this Advent. Don't rush the coming of Christmas. Decline the seductive ploys of instant gratification. Wait. Wait in expectation so that your heart and mind will be ready to receive God's gift."
— Bishop Mark
