Dio­cese of Le­ices­ter

The Church of England - - NEWS -

On Sun­day the Cathe­dral hosted a Vigil of Re­mem­brance and Sol­i­dar­ity for Refugees.

The Dean of Le­ices­ter, David Mon­teith said: “Chris­tians are com­manded to love their neigh­bours and these des­per­ate peo­ple are our neigh­bours. We can’t just watch this on the tele­vi­sion and think of it as noth­ing to do with us. We must sup­port char­i­ties pro­vid­ing food, cloth­ing, and shel­ter. We need to share more of this re­spon­si­bil­ity with oth­ers in Europe and be pre­pared to welcome more vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple into our com­mu­nity.”

The Cathe­dral dis­played a ban­ner, say­ing “#refugeeswel­come“.
