"I like JRS UK, it helps me so much"

10 March 2017

Friday of the 1st week of Lent, 10 March

From today’s responsorial psalm:

“Because with the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption”

Psalm 129 (130)


Over the weeks of Lent, we are introducing you to a number of the refugee friends JRS accompanies. We invite you to walk alongside them and feel the Lord’s mercy.

How have you experienced God’s mercy in your life?


Florence’s Story – Part 6

Florence has been supported by JRS UK for nearly 4 years. As with so many of our refugee friends, it was a friend who told her about JRS and brought her to our Day Centre. Florence comes to JRS UK every two weeks, and when she needs to in between, for practical and emotional support.

I like this place, it helps me too much

Read the next stage of Florence’s journey tomorrow.

Who is your local refugee organisation?

JRS UK is one of many organisations and charities supporting refugees and asylum seekers across the UK. Do you know which organisations work in your area? Could you spare some time to volunteer with them?

Your local Parish may have connections to a project or your local Justice and Peace group may be a good place to start.
