United Church Response to Refugees Seeking Sanctuary As has been in the news of late, there has been an increase in refugees seeking sanctuary by crossing the border from the United States into Canada. Many of these men, women and children are crossing the border at Emerson, Manitoba. A number of people in our Conference of the United Church have expressed a desire to be supportive of those seeking sanctuary and are asking what actions they might take. After consultation with Jordan Basso, the minister at St. Andrew’s United Church, Emerson, with Lynne Sanderson, Chair of Agassiz Presbytery and with The Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council’s Welcome Place, an agency that offers in-Canada protection services for refugee claimants arriving in the country, our Conference is inviting financial support for the ongoing work of Welcome Place. Donations may be made directly through the Welcome Place website or directed through your givings to Immanuel. Please mark your offering envelopes “Interfaith Immigration.” Letters and emails of caring and support to the congregation at St. Andrew’s United Church, Emerson would also be welcomed – c/o Jordan Basso, Box 89, Dominion City, MB R0A 0H0; jordanlbasso
