Migrants and Refugees

Dorothy Harte, our national Presence in the World minister has emailed from Florence suggesting some key current Presence in the World links: Calaid and Seeking Sanctuary for any one wanting to help the Calais migrants, Cafod for the Syrian camps, as well as Franciscans international and Caritas Europa for them all. The UK migrants bishop Patrick Lynch is suggesting most of these too. The pope seems to be liasing with Cardinal Schönborn who is helping in Austria but there is no specific site for that yet.

And many of you may have noticed on facebook that OFSGB is @ work for Syrian refugees! Our Gibraltar fraternity have been very busy this week collecting supplies and filling many boxes for these refugees.
