Catholic and Anglican bishops from Britain and France have joined together to ask their countries to be more generous in response to the migrant crisis at Calais.
Archbishop Peter Smith of Southwark, Trevor Wilmott, Anglican Bishop of Dover, and Catholic Bishop Jean-Paul Jaeger of Arras visited the “Jungle” refugee camp at Calais last Saturday.
They joined more than 2,000 supporters from countries including England, Ireland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, in a “Refugees Welcome” Day of Action. Together they walked from the camp to the port gates where there was a rally with prayers, speeches and music.
