Special Lenten Series on Refugees March 6 – April 10

27 Mar 2019 | 06:00 am

What a wonderful response we’ve had to our Wednesday evening series on learning about refugees. The food has been fabulous and the programs stimulating.  We hope you’ll continue to come for the remaining three weeks!

There is a change in the schedule; on March 27, we’ll be hearing from people who came to the US as refugees from Vietnam and enjoying Vietnamese food for dinner.  Come hear a panel of folks we know (and love!) as they tell us their stories. We’ll have a moderated panel discussion then open it up for questions from those who can join us. The food will be another taste treat- please plan to join us at 6 PM.

On April 3, we’ll learn about how refugees become part of life in America- as employees, as entrepreneurs, as citizens. More videos, more stories, more inspiration. And of course, more wonderful food!

Concluding on April 10, we’ll have another guest who came to the US as a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo and learn how we can support and help those who come to the Richmond area. And yes, there will be more great food.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact our office at 804-730-9700 or email Debbie  Witmoyer at  debbie@newhanoverpres.org
