Hosting Ukrainian Refugees
Although there is less in the news now about displaced Ukrainian people and the Government scheme to enable them to settle here, the need remains and is still acute. We know a number of people have considered hosting an individual or family, but may have been put off by how complex it seems. The Catholic Church, through Caritas Social Action Network and Saint John of God Hospitaller Services, is now launching a strong support scheme to make it easy for Catholics to host guests – their service includes matching, support with all paperwork, and transport of guests.
If you are in a position to consider hosting contact the office and we will give you full information.
Look out for our resources pages, providing links to good things to watch, listen to, or read.

Congratulations to Fr Aidan
We run two weekly discussion and community groups online – on Tuesday evenings and Thursday mornings. The format is very simple – we gather and catch up with each other, watch some video input on a significant topic, and then discuss what we have heard. Each week is self contained, and all are welcome to join, whether for a single week or more regularly.
