Sunday, 15 January was the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. Almost three quarters of people who come to the Cardinal Hume Centre for support were born overseas.
Cardinal Vincent Nichols (Patron of the Centre) and Archbishop Peter Smith, President and Vice President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, have issued a joint statement on the refugee crisis.
