In order to enhance our commitment to supporting parishes throughout the refugee sponsorship process, AURA and diocesan representatives have collaboratively established the Diocesan Refugee Network (DRN).
The primary objective of this network is to create a platform where information can be shared and communication can be fostered among the various refugee committees within the Diocese.
To kickstart this initiative, we held our inaugural online meeting on June 10, 2022, and have now established a regular meeting schedule for the second Thursday of every month at 5pm. These meetings serve as a valuable space for participants to address current issues, exchange suggestions, share resources, and extend support to one another in their respective refugee sponsorship efforts.
We believe that by fostering stronger connections and facilitating knowledge sharing among parishes, the DRN will play a pivotal role in enhancing the effectiveness and impact of refugee sponsorship efforts within the Diocese.
