Catholic Charities: Immigrant and Refugees Services

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington is instrumental in supporting many refugees who have arrived in our area through legal counseling, food and housing, English language classes, job training, and more. Most recently, Catholic Charities has help settle families fleeing from Afghanistan and there are many ways to help!

Virginia Catholic Conference

In late 2004, Virginia’s Catholic bishops founded the Virginia Catholic Conference to represent them and their dioceses of Arlington and Richmond by advocating for public policy that reflects natural law, advances human dignity and serves the common good. The Conference advocates for:

Respect life initiatives that protect human life and dignity in every stage of development and circumstance, from conception until natural death.

Social justice initiatives that protect the rights and serve the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable members of the human family, including children, the elderly, people with disabilities, immigrants, and refugees.

Family life and education initiatives that preserve and support religious liberty, the institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, the family and parental choice in their children’s education.
