Refugee Crisis Newsletter Autumn 2016
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.
The newsletter begins with a foreword from Bishop Richard which includes the message, ‘it is important that the diocese continues to develop innovative ways of working, to ensure that we can engage all our parish communities in effective action’.
It also includes the following
• The Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme (click here) and Community Sponsorship (click here).
• 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 Coordinators (details on page 11 of the Newsletter).
