Charmaine Andrews of the St Joseph Parish Ministry to Migrants and Refugees reports on their work.
The St Joseph Parish Ministry to Migrants and Refugees (PMMR) was formally launched on Sunday, September 9, 2018 with a liturgical ceremony conducted by parish priest Fr Matthew d’Hereaux, in the parish church. Many migrants attended. Among those present was Leela Ramdeen, chair of the Catholic Commission for Social Justice, and the Archdiocesan Ministry to Migrants and Refugees.
The core group consists of nine female parishioners at the moment. Our vision is a world where all our brothers and sisters will be able to live in equality and peace, and where no-one will be hungry or go naked, or lack provision for the journey.
