Labour MP Paul Goggins, the new chairman of the Cardinal Hume Centre, was introduced to staff, supporters and volunteers at a special celebration mass to mark the end of its 25th Anniversary. The Mass in the Centre’s chapel was celebrated by Bishop John Arnold.
The Centre based in Westminster which provides a home for 32 young people and plays a vital role supporting local people in need is now looking forward to the next 25 years. In the face of increasing homelessness it is expanding its hostel accommodation and opening five new self contained units. These will provide an opportunity for homeless people to live independently before having to find their own way in the world.
Chief Executive, Cathy Corcoran said: “This is a very exciting time for us and our expansion to reach out to more people is a great legacy to the work Cardinal Hume started a quarter of a century ago.”
As part of the 25th anniversary, 25 short films have been made to celebrate and remember George Basil Hume and the work he has made possible. You can watch them on Centre TV.
