 As part of our commitment to being an Affirming Congregation, First Met is working in partnership with the group Friendship and Freedom and Inter-cultural Association of Victoria to support a refugee. First Met is providing most of the funds to support the refugee during his first year in Canada, while Friendship and Freedom will help with the practical issues of settlement.

We cannot at this time give details about this refugee as he is not yet in Canada and his life and the lives of others might be at risk. We hope that his case will be processed quickly and that he will come to Canada soon. We will keep you posted about the progress of his case through the system.

In memory of Kathy Cook, who for many years was part of the Refugee Sponsorship group working with St. John the Divine Anglican Church, thank you to all who have supported refugee sponsorships in the past through your prayers and financial contributions.
