Ananias Mission responds to the worldwide refugee crisis through educating our communities, relieving direct conditions, and connecting communities of compassion with refugees in transition.

In 2014, a Syrian family arrived in Pittsburgh. Because of their Christian faith, their home was no longer safe for them. They filed for asylum for religious persecution, and began to build a new life.

They missed Syria, but above all were worried about their family members still trapped there. Their loved ones faced kidnapping, torture, and even murder.

There was no way to bring their family members to the United States, but a door was open in Canada. The Diocese of St. Catharines is sponsoring twenty three Syrians in five family units. These people are the parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews of the Syrian family in Cranberry Township. Churches and individuals in Pittsburgh and all across the country have come together to raise funds to assist Saint Catharines in the sponsorship.

Ananias Mission connects Americans to Canadians to Syrians to faith communities worldwide. We are working to lovingly and compassionately support refugees. It can be hard to know how to respond to this terrible genocide, but working together, we can make a difference and save lives.
