JRS aspires to be hospitality in action. We walk alongside, accompany and offer hospitality to the most vulnerable, those "at the frontiers of humanity", giving priority to situations of great need, in places where a more universal good may be achieved, and to needs to which others are not attending.

Jesuit* Hospitality
Monday, November 05, 2012

At home with Thomas
Monday, November 05, 2012
Sydney, 5 November 2012 – Thomas has been one of our clients since the Sydney World Youth day 2008. In Sydney, the Jesuit Refugee Service provides shelter to asylum seekers who are at risk of destitution while they undergo their refugee status determination. One of the shelters, a large parish house next to the JRS office, can accommodate up to 10 men at a time. The proximity of this house means JRS 'shelter clients' are regular visitors to our office and Thomas is the most frequent of all.
