Lampedusa Cross – Warrington supports Middle East peace
May 13, 2016 | Nick Taylor
A Lampedusa Cross, similar to that on display in the British Museum in London, is to be exhibited in Warrington, to encourage people to think of those affected by violent conflict and in a hope for peace in the world.
A Lampedusa Cross is in the British Museum in London and is described as living history. The organisation Refugee-Aid from is bringing a similar Lampedusa Cross to Warrington on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May 2016.
Everyone is invited to St Monica’s, Dingleway, Appleton, Warrington any time from 10:00 – 13:00 on Saturday 21st May and 13:00 – 16:00 Sunday 22 May to view the cross and supporting Exhibition. The Cross will come with laminated images of refugees, quotes about migration, material for personal reflection, and cards for messages. This is an opportunity to come together and remember our stricken brothers and sisters fleeing civil war in the Middle East and Africa, all of us hoping and praying for peace in the Middle East, being thankful we are able to help beleaguered refugee families in a practical way, and maybe even offering gratitude for our own families’ safety and well- being.
