JRS-UK Summer Party
The Hurtado Jesuit Centre in Wapping opened its door at 10 am on Saturday, 29th June to the staff and volunteers of JRS-UK, as well as to other volunteers from our nearby parish church, St Patrick’s.
A Celebration of the Beauty of Sharing in Life. Indeed that was what characterised the party. Amidst the busyness of making everything run smoothly, the theme of the party was effortlessly kept to: “See the beauty in everyone.” Beautiful, uplifting and courageous stories were shared as volunteers, staff and refugees talked, ate and laughed with one another.
And then after the food, we all came out into the sunshine filled courtyard where soulful acapella music was provided to us by the talented Stratford East singers. Just a truly wonderful (!) and sunny day.
We hope you can be with us next Summer, or sooner! In the meantime, sign up to the blog.
