The Migrants' Mass has been taking place annually since 2006 and aims to highlighting the plight of refugees and migrants around the world. The Mass is jointly organised by Citizens UK, the Dioceses of Southwark, Westminster and Brentwood and brings together 43 Ethnic Chaplaincies. This year Community Sponsorship was the focus in the Mass, which took place at St George's Cathedral, Southwark.
It is a scheme that brings communities together in the collective aim of bringing home a refugee family to live in their community. To be allowed to resettle a refugee family the groups work hard on creating resettlement plans, safeguarding, language provisions as well as local authority and Home Office approval to integrate a refugee family in their area.
