"You Belong" Mural Unveiled

July 23, 2022

Diocesan Migrant & Refugee Services (DMRS) hosted the unveiling of a bright and inspiring mural by artists Kelsey Kilcrease and Nikki Diaz. Located on the side of the DMRS building, the "You Belong" mural is a message of love and unity.

"In this mural, we wanted to depict a mother and child; Mary and Jesus. Their relationship, their bond is the ultimate symbol of love, sacrifice, and humanity" — Kelsey Kilcrease and Nikki Diaz

Contributions of prayer, service, and giving to Diocesan Migrant & Refugee Services (DMRS) continue to make vital work possible.

The Catholic Foundation manages the DMRS Endowment Fund, a permanent endowed fund established by the organization to continue to provide a comprehensive range of services to the community. We’re on a mission to grow their permanent endowed fund to $1 million in 2022.

Diocesan Migrant and Refugee Services, Inc. opened its doors in 1986 in collaboration with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. A ministry of the Catholic Diocese of El Paso, DMRS is the only full-service immigration legal aid clinic serving low-income immigrants and refugees residing in the southwestern United States.

DMRS provides vital legal representation to foreign born priests, newly ordained priests who were not born in the United States, and religious workers who wish to serve in the Diocese of El Paso.
