No Longer Strangers
The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you,
and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land
of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. (Lev. 19:34)
The over-arching philosophy of No Longer Strangers
is to offer genuine Christian friendship to the refugee community. During the resettlement process,
refugees experience a bureaucratic whirlwind that often produces a disturbing
sense of bewilderment and isolation. As we befriend our neighbors, we have
many opportunities to provide assistance in practical matters, but just as
importantly, to laugh with them, share in their sorrows, and to pray with them.
We are grateful for the generosity and cheerful service of our parish members
and Christians throughout the Greater-Dayton area which make this ministry
possible. If you would like to be involved, or for more information about

St. Lazarus Mission
For more than twenty years, a team of dedicated lay ministers from Christ
the King and Christ our Hope parishes in Dayton have partnered to form St.
Lazarus Mission, actively providing residents of local nursing homes with
ongoing pastoral care, "family" visits, and regular Sunday services.
We approach this ministry holistically, adopting everyone in the nursing
home — residents and families, staff and management. We love anyone and
everyone, Christian and non-Christian. We minister both to and with people,
enabling the least of these, the destitute and dying, and the otherwise
forgotten and put away, to be the local, missional church in each nursing
home where they live with purpose, for the glory of God instead of just
waiting to die.

Dominion Academy of Dayton is a college preparatory school
providing a classical education based on the Bible, reason, and Tradition. It was founded
in 1998 by Fr. Wayne and Sandy McNamara.
They chose to name the school "Dominion Academy" out of the conviction that God has given
Christians the humbling role of "kings and priests" of all of Creation. Christians are to
exercise a loving, faithful, and wise stewardship over all things for the glory of our Lord.
In order to exercise this sobering trust with fidelity, Christians must learn
about the true shape of the world — a world existing in Christ, according to the order of the
Christians must learn well in order to love well. Dominion Academy exists in order to educate
young Christians about the shape of the world in Christ and to encourage these
students to properly love creation, understanding that all ultimate meaning is found in
