Marie Marquardt, an STM parishioner, has spoken about her work at El Refugio, a hospitality house in Lumpkin GA that serves the detainees at the Stewart Detention Center and the family members who visit them.  At her request, STM gave a major gift to help fund the renovation and furnishing of a new and expanded El Refugio.  Marie and her colleagues at El Refugio thank STM for our gift, and they invite parishioners to visit and perhaps spend a few hours visiting the detainees and their families.   Read more about El Refugio and STM’s role in opening the new house.
