Bishop Richard Moth Sends Out Latest Refugee Crisis News
A Refugee Crisis Newsletter for Summer 2017 is now available detailing how, as a diocese, under the guidance of Bishop Richard, we are responding to the ever growing challenge of the global refugee crisis.
The newsletter includes the latest information available to us and highlights some tremendous work that is ongoing by the partners we are choosing to work with. Please read a copy and share with your family and friends. Hard copies are now available in your parish. Refugee Week takes place between 19 and 25 June, this provides an important opportunity for asylum seekers and refugees across the UK to be seen, listened to and valued.
The newsletter begins with a foreword from Bishop Richard which includes the message, ‘since our response began, we have witnessed positive outcomes for the integration of refugee families – but there is so much more that needs to be done’.
It also includes the following:
- The Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme and Community Sponsorship.
- The work of Voices in Exile who support those seeking asylum, refugees and those with no recourse to public funds.
- Stories from Refugees supported by our partners.
- Prayers, bible passages, Catholic Social Teaching principles and quotes.
- Ways to help including hosting an event or pledging financial support.
Anyone who wants to learn more about how to get involved should contact our Coordinator whose details can be found in Refugee Crisis News on page 11.
