Episcopal Migration Ministries is the refugee resettlement and immigrant advocacy program of the Episcopal Church.


#RefugeesWelcome #StandToSupportRefugees
Stand Together to Support Refugees

Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) lives the call of welcome by supporting refugees, immigrants, and the communities that embrace them as they walk together in The Episcopal Church’s movement to create loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships rooted in compassion. EMM’s desire to honor the inherent value of human connection brings communities together to love their neighbors as themselves.

EMM--Diocese of Texas acts in covenant with individuals and partners, such as Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston and Refugees Services of Texas (Austin office) to ensure the equity of all voices as they work to serve, engage, and sustain the mission.

Today there are: 

65.8 million displaced people in the world.
25.4 million are refugees
12.7 million are children
