Refugee Crisis

Mary Kilcoyne the Director of the Catholic Children’s  Society has been appointed by Bishop Mark to be the Diocesan link for information about the  Syrian Refugees.

Please follow the Link to the Facebook page for the latest information.

Just to draw your attention to Refugee Week 20 – 26th June 2016. It is hoped that parishes and mass centres, schools and colleges will hold an activity and pray for Refugees.

We are currently preparing to send resources to primary and secondary schools for an assembly/R.E. class and preparing bidding prayers for use in the parishes. These resources will be sent out in time for the designated week and will also be available for download on Catholic Children’s Society website:

If you wish to know more about the Refugee Response and inform others in the Diocese what you are doing please use the following link to the facebook page on the Catholic Children’s Society website

Thank you
Mary Kilcoyne
