The Board of County Commissioners of Johnson County, Kansas, issued a proclamation today for the recognition of Welcoming Week 2021, which is designed to bring neighbors of all backgrounds together, and build welcoming places for all. Lauren Solidum, President & CEO, and Denise Ogilvie, Chief Missions Officer, accepted the proclamation on behalf of the commitment of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas to welcoming the stranger.  “Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support from our community,” said Solidum. “Catholic Charities has been resettling refugees for over 60 years in the State of Kansas and now is an excellent time to reaffirm, educate and acknowledge the sincere value that our refugee and immigrant families bring to our community. We pray that these families feel the hospitality and welcome we all know and love here in Kansas City.”
