MISSION CAPSULES: Inspired by God’s promise of abundant life, PWS&D envisions a world where no one has to live in danger or exile. Because of the efforts of congregations, presbyteries and other groups involved in refugee sponsorship, those forced to flee their homes out of fear for their lives and liberty are experiencing peace in Canada. This year marks the 40th anniversary of The Presbyterian Church in Canada as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder with the Government of Canada. This World Refugee Day, we are celebrating the partnership between PWS&D and sponsoring groups and the life-giving work that welcomes refugees to Canada. Together, we continue to journey alongside refugees as they search for peace and security.
