Alabama Episcopal Church says welcome refugees, immigrants

 From Alabama-

The Episcopal Diocese of Alabama has voted to "offer hospitality for refugees, migrants and immigrants in the state of Alabama and offer resources as needed."

The diocese, which includes 30,000 members at 90 parishes in north and central Alabama, passed the resolution supporting refugees and immigrants in its most recent annual convention on Feb. 18 in Birmingham.

"We want to make sure we extend hospitality to every stranger," said lay delegate Janet Pandzik, a member of the vestry at Trinity Episcopal Church in Clanton, which introduced the resolution.
