Brigid McEleney-Smith was recently interviewed on East Devon Radio’s Sunday Morning Show by Howard James about Sidmouth Companions – a Community Sponsorship Group helping to resettle a Syrian family in Sidmouth.  Brigid is from the parish of The Most Precious Blood Sidmouth. Throughout her interview she detailed the fascinating and inspiring  journey her community has had, mentioning Pope Francis’s call for every parish in the world to welcome a refugee family as a galvanising concept. She speaks about the enthusiasm and support of her parish priest, Fr Paul Cummins and the grace and hospitality of the wider community in Sidmouth. She also mentions the pivotal role Caritas Plymouth has had in helping to make this wonderful story of human connection and faith in action happen.
