Mission and Method

Compelled by faith, compassion, and a yearning for justice, ERICA honors and ministers to the dignity and humanity of those fleeing oppression, persecution, and poverty in other countries. We undertake this mission as an outreach program of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore, Maryland, envisioning a City and State of genuine welcome and respect for all.

All of ERICA’s services are free. We carry out our mission in the spirit of Christian hospitality and with a commitment to listen, share and respect. Our programs are non-religious in nature and are offered free of charge without regard to nationality, religion, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation.
