This is Refugee Week

"It’s a chance to help increase understanding and change some attitudes towards the 70 million refugees around the world. So this week's dares, prayers and challenges have a refugee theme."

Please head over to CAFOD to access the materials

Prayer for refugees:

"Abba Father, our beloved Father,
look down with mercy on us and all refugees.

Remember your son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
had to leave his homeland and flee to Egypt,
when he was a baby,
with his mother, Mary,
and foster father, Joseph.

Help us to be aware
of the fears, anxiety, pain, sorrow,
difficulties and uncertainty all refugees suffer,
and to remember that we all belong
to the same human family.

Holy Spirit,
please give us compassion and courage
to help them in any way we can.
Amen.

Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.

Diana Ng-Sutherland, CAFOD"
