Many faith traditions call us to 'welcome the stranger'. Pope Francis reminds us amidst political upheaval that "it is not human to close the door, it is not human to close the heart." So, join us for a heart opening all levels yoga class to support Migration and Refugee Services!
Migration and Refugee Services (MRS), a department of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland, has been resettling refugees in Cuyahoga County since 1948. As the largest resettlement office in Northern Ohio, MRS expects to resettle over 450 refugees this year. MRS is one of 108 affiliates of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB). USCCB has a cooperative agreement with the United States to resettle refugees who have been legally admitted through the federal Refugee Admissions Program. These individuals have fled their home countries in fear of persecution because of their ethnicity, nationality, social group, religious affiliation or political beliefs.
