These profiles and the national report are available at:  as well as

We are happy to offer each diocese a “Diocesan PCMRT Profile Report” as soon as it is available. An overview of the study was presented to the body of bishops on Friday, June 18th, 2021, at the Virtual June 2021 Plenary Assembly, and can be seen at:

It is our hope and prayer that this report may be of help in identifying, strengthening, and expanding outreach efforts to the many immigrants, refugees, and mobile communities in the U.S. For additional information or to request your diocesan report, please contact PCMRT - Sr. Joanna Okereke at @email
