Refugee Resettlement Ministry

Refugee Resettlement Ministry

The Refugee Resettlement Ministry at St Teresa of Calcutta Parish is a group of parishioners and members of the community committed to welcoming the stranger among us by assisting new arrived immigrants in finding housing and employment.  We support them in their journey to full assimilation.

Currently, we have collaborated with Catholic Charities of Newark to provide a safe, welcoming home in the rectory of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church for three migrant families seeking asylum.  The Refugee Resettlement Ministry also provides assistance with obtaining health care and education for children.  For more information please contact the parish office or reach out to Catherine Mulroe at Catherin.Mulroe@gmail.com
