In the past, Sacred Heart Parish community has sponsored refugee families from other countries. Last year our parish community privately sponsored a family from Syria. They have settled in Ladner this past year (since October 2016). It is planned that the remaining three family members, living as refugees in Lebanon, can be supported through our community and immigrate to Canada to settle with their family here.
Thanks to the generosity of our Parish, the family feel welcomed into Canada. Continued support from medical, dental and ESL volunteers, the committee and parishioners has enabled the family to integrate well. While they miss their family and friends in Syria they are happy to feel safe and able to move forward in their lives here in Canada.
