Come to this Gidea Park study day on migration, a constant phenomenon in the world of today. People leaving their own countries due to desperate conditions seek new homes in new places. Earlier this year the Bishops of England and Wales produced a document on Migrants and Refugees, entitled ‘Love the Stranger: A Catholic Response to Migrants and Refugees’. It addresses the challenges from the perspective of Catholic social teaching developed over the centuries.

Liam Allmark, Senior Policy and Research Analyst on International Affairs and Migration at the Catholic Bishops’ Conference, will present the document at this Gidea Park study day and discuss the response of the Catholic community. The event will be held on Saturday 7 October at the Catholic Church of Christ the Eternal High Priest in Gidea Park (RM2 6DH) from 11 am.

Refreshments will be available from 10.30. Ample parking available and local eateries. Five minutes’ walk from the Elizabeth Line. This free event is both in-person and live-stream. Please go to for details. A recording of the study day will be made available on the website.
