Updated JRS-USA Website

JRS/USA witnesses to the reality that God is present in human history, even in the most tragic experiences of persons driven from their homes by conflict, natural disaster, economic injustice, or violation of other human rights.

St. Ignatius would use the Internet. Perhaps the most prolific letter writer of his day, St. Ignatius communicated, guided, begged and directed both Jesuits and their friends and benefactors with his written communications. The Jesuit Refugee Service-USA website affords us images of people with whom God is present in dire circumstances.

The updated website not only informs about displaced peoples around the globe. It also allows visitors to it to pray with refugees and to take action on their behalf.
