The Santa Rosa & Malabar R.C. Parishes Migrants & Refugees Ministry was established on June 24th, 2019 and placed under the patronage of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the patron of immigrants. During its development, a ministry guiding document was created which outlined mission objectives and a vision to provide peace and hospitality for migrants and refugees in their local parish communities.

They have a total of 81 members, a core leadership team of six (6) persons and have four (4) sub-committees to manage their ministry outreach. In addition to this, they have 18 bilingual member who are essential to the function of their ministry. They are the largest ministry in terms of its membership size, which includes many young adults within the Archdiocese Ministry For Migrants and Refugees (AMMR) network.  They  are  also  one  of  the  most  active  ministries  offering  diverse outreach.


The ministry focuses on eight (8) areas:

  • Solidarity Defense(Community  Advocacy)  

  • Healthcare

  • Social  Integration  Events
