Bishop Mark’s words at Welcome the Stranger Event.

At an event marking the Day of Prayer for Victims of Modern Slavery, on 8th February, the Feast of St Josephine Bakhita, Bishop Mark gave a reflection on the Parable of the Good Samaritan and Chapter 2 of Pope Francis’ Encyclical Fratelli Tutti.

“​I want to echo our thanks to those who helped to bring us together for this event – Stephen Hicks of Caritas Clifton and Deborah Fisher and Canon John Deeny of Caritas Plymouth.  It is good, too, to be with my brother bishop, +Declan and with the people of Clifton Diocese.  You will know one of the phrases that Pope Francis uses in Fratelli Tutti, Brothers and sisters, all is, ‘we are all in the same boat.'”
