In 2017 the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Halifax, welcomed 12 Ethiopians via Nairobi, through Canada Lutheran World Relief. The 12 have were reunited with their sister (a member at Resurrection) and her family who came a number of years before as refugees. The family is doing well!
Continuing this work Resurrection currently has new applications underway. We look forward to welcoming newe family.
Resurrection's family includes families from Ethiopia and Eritrea.
Our current application is to bring a family of four Eritreans who will be reunified with relatives. - three siblings and one of these with a four year old.
The congregation has a sponsorship list representing 10 family groups (10 sponsorship undertakings). Currently these refugees are in Central Shimelba camp in Ethiopia and in Kalobeyei Village camp in Kenya.
South Grey Lutheran Parish (ON) is sponsoring the second family group of 5. This parish is supporting the application financially and through prayer. Resurrection will be providing on the ground work when the family arrives.
If you are a congregation who would like to sponsor a family financially and have others welcome/resettle please feel free to email the church for details.
