Welcome to SJRAISE
In keeping with our Baptismal Covenant as Christians, the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin is working with others to support the Refugees and Immigrants who live among us as our neighbors.
Our website is intended as a tool to help with education about the policies and laws that impact Refugees and Immigrants. It's also designed to provide resources for assisting our neighbors as they continue to live their lives, often in fear of what will come next.
We recognize that our stories today often parallel stories throughout human history. We recognize especially the story of Jesus who was born homeless, and became a refugee at an early age in his life.
Join us to commemorate Immigration Month

The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt. Lev 19:34
