Our co-operation with Dar-Ul-Isra and Al Manar Mosques is developing well and should enable our group, named “Croeso Roath/Cathays”, to welcome a refugee family from the war-torn Middle East by Easter.
This approach is the initiative of the Home Office and is based on the success of Community Sponsorship methods in Canada which have settled several thousand refugee families in recent years.
For more information on our work or to offer your time or finance, please talk to Fr Tony.
REFUGEE PROJECT UPDATE JANUARY 2018
The co-ordinators have now submitted the main application forms to Cardiff Council and the Home Office. It is still a realistic expectation that we will be able to welcome a refugee family around Easter. There is a target figure of £9,000 to be raised in the next couple of months to ensure a sound financial base for things like English classes, initial expenses to prepare the house, transport and food. If you can help with a one-off donation, cheques can be made out to “St Peters” and delivered to the presbytery. The next full meeting of the group is on Thursday 22nd February at 7.30pm here in St David’s Chapel.
