The first group of Refugees to come in 2016 will arrive in Wellington at the end of February. The Catholic and Anglican Communities are working with the Red Cross to welcome Refugees and help them feel at home here.
The government will supply the big furniture items for the 24 households but we are asked to donate from the following list of smaller items.
The Social Justice group of our new parish is committed to assist the St. Vincent de Paul Society in this.
We still need volunteers to work in teams to set up the houses. There will be a briefing on Monday, 22nd February, 6-8pm at the Loaves and Fishes beside the Anglican Cathedral. All volunteers need to attend this briefing.
The houses will be set up on Thursday, 25th February between 6—8.30pm, the evening before the Refugees arrive.
Please contact John Feeney or Sue Johnson on 386 4956 for more information, or check out the Refugee Resettlement document on your church notice board or on the parish website.
