Episcopal Migration Ministries – Multimedia

[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM), on behalf of the Episcopal Church, carries out the ministry it began more than 60 years ago to relieve the burden of the world’s suffering through refugee resettlement and advocacy. World Refugee Day was established by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees to commemorate the spirit and courage of refugees each year on June 20. EMM asks parishes and communities within the Episcopal Church to join in remembering the millions of refugees around the world who have fled persecution, war and violence to seek better lives. In an interview, EMM director Richard Parkins speaks about the significance of World Refugee Day and the work of EMM, which has a network of 33 affiliate offices in 27 dioceses, along with ecumenical and interfaith partners, many congregations, and countless volunteers. A video stream of Parkins’ interview is available at http://www.episcopalchurch.org/81231_ENG_HTM.htm Visit http://www.episcopalchurch.org/emm to learn more about EMM.
