The latest events, news, blogs and publications from JRS UK
To mark World Refugee Day, on Sunday 20th June at 6pm JRS UK is hosting an online prayer service in partnership with JRS/USA. The event will be led by Fr Damian Howard SJ, Provincial of the Jesuits in Britain.
We will be gathering to pray with and for refugees around the world, especially those we accompany at JRS. We will be praying a new form of the popular Examen prayer which we have developed to allow prayerful reflection on the refugee experience.
Join us on Zoom at 6pm on Sunday 20th June.

We advocate on behalf of those we accompany and serve, and we do so with their participation. For this reason, our advocacy at JRS UK focuses on issues relating to detention and destitution, as these are the focus of our services.
JRS UK advocate for policies that protect refugees and allow them to flourish. Much of our current policy and advocacy work focuses around challenging the ‘hostile environment agenda’.
