Sanctuary seeks to be an instrument of God’s peace. Since 2015, when Sanctuary members began the process of sponsoring a refugee family from Syria, we have coordinated the talents and treasure of the parish to support refugee families as they settle in Kingston.

St. Paul the Apostle Parish is in the process of sponsoring our third family, the Mer'i Family (two parents, three children).  

As we prepare to welcome the Mer'i Family to Kingston, we are looking to recruit a Settlement Coordinator, who will help the family to integrate into their new home in Kingston.  They will be responsible for coordinating tasks and schedules for the Settlement Team.  Strong communication and planning skills are required.  If interested, please contact the parish office.


As the situation for refugees deteriorates in Lebanon, the parish has been providing financial support to cover the basic needs of the family.  To sustain this initiative and to prepare to assist the Mer'i family when they arrive in Kingston, we are asking you to become a monthly donor!

A donation of $24 a month helps to provide shelter and food for the Mer'i family. 

We invite you to support this important initiative - Refugee Rescue 24 - by clicking here.
