Refugee Welcome Cards Project
All over the world, millions of people are attempting to find new homes for their families because of violence, war, and persecution. Did you know that Catholic Charities, Diocese of Camden welcomes and resettles about 100 refugees each year here in South Jersey? This important work is one way our church is following Jesus’s commandment to welcome the stranger. To help our new neighbors feel at home, the diocese is sponsoring a Refugee Welcome Cards campaign.
Parishes and schools are being invited to participate in this project, using the resources posted on this webpage.
If individuals or families would like to participate on their own, download the Welcome Card Template on this page, print it, write or draw an encouraging message of welcome, and mail it to:
Diocese of Camden
ATTN: Martha Scutte
631 Market Street
Camden, NJ 08102
Cards will be distributed to refugee families living in our area.
