Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR), in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee, invites you attend a special workshop on the Blended Visa Office Referred (BVOR) refugee sponsorship program. Best-selling author and blogger, Ann Voskamp will be the special guest speaker, sharing about the joys and challenges of her refugee sponsorship journey.
In light of the growing refugee crisis, Lutheran congregations have an opportunity to respond by resettling refugees via the BVOR program, a cost-sharing program with the Canadian government. You can learn more about how you and your congregation can welcome the stranger into your community!
You can join us one of two nights:
Thursday, September 20 @ 7:00pm
Bethany Community Church, 1388 Third Street, St. Catharines, ON
Friday, September 21@ 7:00pm
The Meeting House, 2700 Bristol Circle, Oakville, ON
Admission is free, but registration is required: https://mcccanada.ca/get-involved/events/choose-welcome-ann-voskamp
Please share the attached poster with your congregants! CLWR will be present at both events to provide further information.
