The Catholic community responds to the refugee crisis


Pictured left, Chris Driscoll Community Participation Coordinator – CAFOD Brentwood Volunteer Centre holding the Lampedusa cross outside Brentwood Cathedral's Door of Mercy. Sicilian carpenter Francesco Tuccio made rough crosses from the wreckage of a boat carrying refugees that sank off the island of Lampedusa. The crosses were offered to survivors as a symbol of their rescue and a sign of hope. A cross is held by each Diocese in England and Wales. The Lampedusa Cross has been taken to schools across the diocese and has featured in a number of assemblies, liturgies and moments of prayer and reflection. The cross is a powerful symbol of the unfolding tragedy of the refugee crisis across the world, and many have expressed how moved they have been in its presence.
