Dio­cese of Lich­field

The Church of England - - THE CHURCH IN ENGLAND -

Dean of Lich­field, the Very Rev Adrian Dor­ber, hosted a Refugee Cri­sis Meet­ing on Wed­nes­day at the Cathe­dral. The meet­ing was de­signed for peo­ple within the dio­cese and lo­cal church and civic lead­ers to dis­cuss re­sponses to the hu­man­i­tar­ian cri­sis.

Speak­ing ahead of the event, Dean Dor­ber said: “Here in Eng­land, many cathe­drals and churches are hold­ing meet­ings such as ours to bring to­gether all who are con­cerned about the sit­u­a­tion. We want to har­ness the good will, com­pas­sion and gen­eros­ity of lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, the churches and lo­cal author­i­ties to see how we can help at this acutely dif­fi­cult time, and see how we can nudge gov­ern­ment into act­ing with imag­i­na­tion and mercy.”
