Save the Date... Refugee Policy Update!

Posted 1:36 PM by

 

Join us at St. Dunstan’s for A State Department Briefing on Refugee Admissions and Assistance.

On Tuesday June 5 at 7:30 p.m. Ambassador Mark C. Storella, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration will appear at St. Dunstan’s Parish Hall to talk about the Administration’s refugee admission program and provide a broader perspective on refugee assistance around the world and their humanitarian diplomacy on behalf of refugees, including the latest information on Rohingya crisis in Myanmar and Bangladesh.  He will be able to answer our questions about current and future refugee admissions policy and provide guidance about how our community can take concrete action to help with refugee settlement here and refugee assistance abroad.

Ambassador Mark Storella, a member of the Senior Foreign Service, has a longstanding commitment to humanitarian affairs and human rights. He joined the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration in June 2016 with responsibility for admission of refugees to the United States and refugee programming in the Near East and Asia regions.

Let me know if you have any comments or questions.  I look forward to seeing you there!

March for Our Lives- Follow-up

Posted 5:46 PM by
These two photos tell so much of the story of the last weekend's March for Our Lives.
 
This first one is a picture of the interfaith vigil service held at our Cathedral the Friday evening before the March. Our cathedral was filled and almost overflowing with people of all ages and from all parts of our country and local communities. There were tears and prayers, songs of mourning and of hope. It was a powerful evening leading into an even more powerful morning.
 
 
The other is from the Church of the Epiphany in DC Saturday morning - the gathering place for many Episcopalians from around the country, mostly young people who came on buses from all over the US. Again we prayed and sang and were sent out. Our attempt at gathering all in the front of the church to take a group picture didn't quite work, as the crowd was so large.
 
The most amazing part of the experience for me was walking through a very crowded Pennsylvania Ave with Jeff. Reading signs, some extremely creative, and noticing the amazing diversity of who had gathered. It was a very respectful crowd, yet full of energy and passion. Every color, age, size, and faith tradition seemed to be present. Some marching to get as close as they could and others just finding a good place to watch from the screens along the route. 
 
If you are seeking ways to discuss this further with young people or just want to learn for yourself what might be next; the Diocese of Washington along with the Youth Ministry Office of The Episcopal Church have prepared some materials. Those can be accessed here - The Bus Ride Home.
