The Refugee Committee

The Church's love for the poor . . . is a part of her constant tradition. This love is inspired by the Gospel of the Beatitudes, of the poverty of Jesus, and of his concern for the poor. Love for the poor is even one of the motives for the duty of working so as to ``be able to give to those in need.`` It extends not only to material poverty but also to the many forms of cultural and religious poverty.

Join us in our mission:


The St. Mary’s Cathedral Family Sponsorship Group is an ever-growing organization of donors and volunteers in the Kingston community that serves God through service to the human family, by providing humanitarian assistance to refugees in the international community, offering them a chance to have a secure future in Canada by way of facilitating their resettlement and the reunification with family members, and supporting them as they begin to integrate in the local community.


Our role in sponsorship:
The role of the private sponsor is to provide full financial, emotional, and settlement support to the newcomer family for the first 12 months after their arrival. A minimum of $35,000 should be raised, per family. We welcome donations of used goods; including furniture, household items, and clothing.
