Christian Refugees in Pittsburgh

  • Church of the Ascension 4729 Ellsworth Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15225 United States (map)

In 2016 there were more forcibly displaced people around the world than at any time in human history. What can Christians do to care for those who find themselves homeless from their homeland?

Focusing on Pittsburgh's African refugee communities, we will share an authentic African meal with recent refugees and learn about the ways local churches are serving their needs and their experiences through the lens of their faith.

Prof. Jean-Jacques Sène (Chatham), himself a former refugee, will lead a conversation on the recent crisis of displacement, the theology that undergirds Christian responses, and the faith that sustains refugee communities.

The event will be held on Saturday, February 25th from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Church of the Ascension.
