Today  (14th Janaury 2018) at Mass the chair of the Parish Core Team Ann Connor and the Caritas National Coordinator of the "Community Sponsirship of Refugees" Sean Ryan spoke to us about the refugee resettlement programme.  We are hoping to participate in this programme and support a refugee family in our parish.

Participation in the refugee resettlement programme helps to answer the call from Pope Francis 

`May every parish, every religious community, every monastery, every sanctuary of Europe, take one family`

{Pope Francis made this appeal during his Angelus address on 6th September 2015. The full text can be found on the Vatican website click here}

The Archdiocese started to look at what can be done and published an article on the Archdiocesan website click here to read it.  Since then the Liverpool Justce and Peace Comission have been looking into the Community Sponsorship scheme and they have posted a playlist of videos on their Youtube channel.

 

If you are interested in this cause and/or wish to help the parish becoming a community sponsor please come to a meeting in the Fisher-More Hall on Tuesday 23rd January at 7.30pm

For more information on what will be discussed at the meeting, please refer to the handout given out at Mass on the 14th January 2018. If you do not have a copy click here to access an electronic copy.
