Bishop Patrick to receive Lampedusa Cross

Maggie Mairura, CAFOD Nottingham Community Participation Coordinator writes….

As part of the Year of Mercy – Welcoming the Stranger and to recognize Refugee Week, on Thursday 23rd June 2016 at St Barnabas Cathedral, Bishop Patrick will receive the Diocesan Lampedusa Cross.

All are invited to celebrate Mass at 6.15pm, not only to pray for refugees but by writing a message of hope using CAFOD’s Year of Picture1Mercy Lampedusa Cross action card, we can show solidarity with refugees. These will then be dedicated at the end of the Year of Mercy and shared with refugees from all over the world.
