Refugee Thanksgiving Lunch

The Annual Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Thanksgiving will be held Saturday, November 12, 2016, at St. Gregory the Great Parish, 5545 N. Paulina St., Chicago, IL. 60660. Please note that entry into the school cafeteria, where the event will be held is off 1677 W. Bryn Mawr, Chicago, IL. 60660. Nearly 120 refugees from Burma, Iraq, Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran and Afghanistan, will enjoy their very first Thanksgiving meal in community with Catholic Charities Board, Junior Board, staff, and other families and individuals making a new home in the United States.

Your sponsorship helps people in need in the communities where you live and work to move from the fear and uncertainty of fleeing their homes to the courage and hope for a new beginning in the United States. The warmth of family and community over this Thanksgiving meal reminds us all of our shared heritage and solidarity with our newest neighbors.
