'Welcome the stranger, for oft Christ comes in the stranger's guise.' Old Irish Saying
Today Jan 20th has been given the title 'Migrant Sunday'. We remember today all who have left their homelands in search of employment, a new beginning, perhaps safety. The aim of any community or parish is to make it a place of welcome for people of any nationality. The challenge each day is to reach out a hand of welcome to those who have come to live among us. We ask God to bless all who live in our community and in particular those who have come to live with us from outside.
