The response from parishioners and neighbors in Catholic Diocese of Arlington who want to help Afghan families with Special Immigrant Visas fleeing to this country? Generosity beyond measure!
These are just some of the boxes that arrived yesterday and today at our Migration and Refugee Services offices in Arlington.
The biggest need faced by the Afghans we are serving is for permanent housing.

Bishop Michael F. Burbidge blessed a new, high-tech ultrasound machine at the Manassas Mother of Mercy Free Medical Clinic July 20. The $32,000 machine was donated primarily by the Knights of Columbus Fr. Julius J. Cilinski Council 10947 in Clifton.

Today Catholic Diocese of Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge blessed the new “Mercedes” of an ultrasound machine - a Samsung H550 - which will be especially helpful in caring for women with high-risk pregnancies who come for prenatal care at our Mother of Mercy Free Medical Clinic in Manassas.
Before Catholic Charities opened the clinic, through the efforts of the Blessed Virgin Foundation, the location housed an abortion center.
Funds for the new $32,000 ultrasound were donated primarily by the Knights of the Julius Cilinski Council, other councils, and the Supreme Knights. On behalf of the vulnerable women who receive life-affirming care at Mother of Mercy, we are so grateful.

It's been a busy week for our Office of Newcomer Services. On Saturday in Arlington Hogar Immigrant Services, Legal sponsored an information session for refugees who arrived here 4-6 years ago on how to prepare for the naturalization process. It's the first of 4 sessions we'll offer for Migration and Refugee Services clients this year. The workshop was part of our POWIR (Parishes Organized to Welcome Immigrants and Refugees) initiative.

Then in both our Arlington and Fredericksburg MRS offices we held another successful drive-thru distribution event for refugee families, giving food, household supplies, and PPE.

We're grateful to the parishes, volunteers and donors who support these efforts!

We're so grateful when young people come to us eager to help our neighbors, particularly hungry children. Take the 35 Work Camp students from St Joseph Catholic Church-Herndon VA, St. Mark Catholic Church - Vienna, VA, Saint Luke Catholic Church and Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church we met inside at Turner Farm in Great Falls earlier this week to organize, pack lunches and write little notes for the children who will benefit from our Summer Kids Meal project.
Sr. Aniliza Juan, SNDS, - affectionately known as Sr. Annie - our volunteer coordinator at Christ House, worked alongside the students (she loved that!) She says the easy-to-fix meals will be distributed to families with children at our Christ House food pantry.

Who doesn't welcome a chance to celebrate the end of a school year? Especially when the year included a pandemic, the traumatic experience and adjustment of having to flee one's home country, and the challenges both academic and cultural of settling into a new home and school (especially a virtual one).

And celebrate we did on Friday when our Migration and Refugee Services staff hosted a festive drive-thru event at our Arlington office for 70 youngsters (and their 25 families) who participated in the Virginia Refugee Student Achievement Program (VRSAP). A similar event was held at our Fredericksburg office for students in the VRSAP program there. The end-of-year celebrations came with balloons, brightly colored signs, gifts bags and certificates to honor their hard work. The kids' faces - smiling behind their masks - show their hope and resilience. The future for these refugee children is bright!

Fresh and green is good!

We've got tomatoes, beans and peppers growing in the garden behind our food pantry and men's transitional housing program at Christ House, in Old Town Alexandria. This garden is lovingly planted and tended by our Catholic Charities volunteers, and watered by one of our Christ House residents.
We'll distribute what we harvest to our pantry visitors, and the men living at Christ House.

Today - the Feast of Saint Thomas More, martyr for the faith - we join with Catholic Diocese of Arlington and the Church around the U.S. in observing #ReligiousFreedomWeek. Each day this week we focus on one way that we can pray, reflect, and act, in order to maintain our religious freedoms. Today we focus on Catholic adoption and foster care.

For almost 75 years Catholic Charities has helped unite children with parents through adoption. During the pandemic, more couples than ever before stepped up to begin the process of welcoming a child into their home. Please join us in praying for these children and the families who are discerning whether they should open their home to a child through adoption.
