Butte parishes ready to help refugee family

THE BUTTE – The parishes of St. Patrick and Immaculate Conception are prepared to welcome and assist a refugee family in need.

“We’re thrilled, we’re delighted, and we want to work hard to make sure this is a huge success,” Father Patrick Beretta expressed his excitement and happiness.

Father Patrick Beretta claims that a parishioner contacted him with a creative suggestion for a project.

Because of the evacuation of Kabul International Airport, she was compelled to offer that the church hosts a family and assist them in their resettlement.

“We’re thrilled, we’re delighted, and we want to work hard to make sure this is a huge success,” Father Patrick Beretta expressed his excitement and happiness.
Beretta embraced the concept immediately and presented it to the parish council, who voted overwhelmingly in support of it.

“We considered it to be a sacred responsibility. These were individuals whose lives were in danger because they were our allies in another country. “Beretta expressed himself in this way.

He started putting together a group of people in charge of the family’s money, medical needs, jobs, and educational pursuits.

According to Beretta, the community must understand the screening process that the families go through before being accepted.

The refugee families were transported to American Air Force facilities in Europe and the Middle East due to the events at Kabul International Airport.

When a family cleared the initial round of vetting conducted by military intelligence, they were sent to Air Force facilities throughout the United States. They were subjected to the second phase of vetting guided by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Beretta wants to ensure that the family receives the same level of care that he had when he first arrived in Butte ten years ago.

According to Beretta, “I have personally experienced the incredible gifts of hospitality that this town has to give.” he said.

He claims that the parish is entirely prepared to welcome the family to Butte and hopes that the experience will be pleasant for both the family and the rest of the community.

“As a result, it is not just about greeting individuals and providing them with a haven, but it is also about learning from the experience. It’s all about learning from your mistakes, and that’s precisely what I desire. I want this to be a positive experience for everyone involved, including the community and the family in need, “remarked Beretta
