Migrant Center / Immigration

The Migrant Center of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi:

Our Vision

Inspired by the Franciscan tradition of ministering to people who are alienated, displaced, or persecuted, the “pilgrims and strangers” in our midst, The Migrant Center at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi welcomes immigrants/migrants of various ethnic backgrounds regardless of political or religious affiliation.

Our Services

• Immigration Assistance – assisting immigrants/migrants with their legal needs • Advocacy and Network Building – aimed at protecting and promoting the rights and welfare of immigrants through campaigns on issues pertinent to the life of immigrants, visits to Immigration Detention Center, etc., in collaboration with other immigrant/migrant organizations and institutions • Education and Formation – aimed at raising public awareness and providing opportunities for involvement in initiatives that promote and protect the rights of immigrants/migrants in collaboration with other organizations and institutions.
