Prayer vigil for refugees

Following the huge upsurge of concern around the world surrounding the refugee crisis in Europe 22 Anglican Schools took part in a prayer vigil from 3pm Thursday 15th October through to 3pm Friday 16th October. Prayers were said, prayer chains were made and letters were written to refugees during the relay. The prayer chain will be on display in Wellington cathedral from 4 November. A Facebook page was set up and you can still access this to get a small sense of the community that gathered around the country to dedicate 24 hours to the plight of people who have fled their homes.
