The HT Migrant Team/Migrant Familia has been accompanying and advocating for refugees since 2017 when we welcomed the Cheikho family from Syria. Today we are accompanying 27 families from 12 countries. 100 million people are forcibly displaced around the world, and our Migrant Familia stands ready to welcome and accompany these mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons as they seek refuge in our community. Thank you for supporting the work of this ministry. Read our 2022 End of Year Report

AMDG Podcast

“The Holy Spirit provides.”

This is one of the central mantras of the Migrant Familia program at the Jesuits' Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, D.C. The program provides crucial support to newly-arrived migrants.

On the new AMDG podcast, our guests are Ashley Klick, coordinator of the Familia program, and two of its graduates, Julien Patrick Tete Wabo and Miguel Flores, who fled political persecution in Cameroon and Nicaragua, respectively. Stream the episode by clicking here.


A member of our migrant familia, Fredy Sevilla, is featured in a national summer campaign on immigration.  He is very grateful to Holy Trinity.

Solidarity Across Borders

We are a community and only in a community can we move forward without leaving anyone behind.

As we encounter people in migration through reading and listening to the testimonies of the Solidarity Across Borders campaign, we remember that we are a community and only in a community can we move forward without leaving anyone behind.

In that spirit, through this campaign we join with partners throughout Central America and North America to promote solidarity and hospitality and grow in empathy for refugees and people in migration in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic.  Listen to Fredy's Story here.
