Diocese of Leicester
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“.
