Calais

Last Saturday, Miss Lynch, Miss Crean, Mr Devereux, Sr Christine and five other volunteers (from Neighbours in Poplar), went to visit a refugee camp in Calais, France. They took with them a range of vital supplies to help those in need in the camp, such as: clothes; a range of bedding; medical supplies; food; batteries and foil survival emergency blankets. They got to speak to many refugees, who were extremely thankful and grateful for the help.

Year of Mercy Pilgrimage Mass

Last Wednesday, we were extremely privileged to attend the Year of Mercy Pilgrimage Mass celebrated by Cardinal Vincent Nichols. In his homily, he asked us to spread this message to everyone, which can be found in Luke 6:27-38:

‘Be compassionate as your Father is compassionate. Do not judge, and you will not be judged yourselves; do not condemn and you will not be condemned yourselves; grant pardon and you will be pardoned. Give, and there will be gifts for you: a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap; because the amount you measure out is the amount you will be given back.’
