Migrant Tragedy in the English Channel
In September 2016, Pope Francis told members of the European Confederation and World Union of Jesuit Alumni that 'Every Migrant has a name, a face and a story' and that 'they are no different than our own family and friends'. It is with great sadness that the Archdiocese of Southwark acknowledges the tragic death of 27 migrants, whose boat capsized as they endeavoured to cross from Calais to England in the hope of peace and a better life.

For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission
On 10th October 2021, Pope Francis formally opened a two-year process called ‘a synod on synodality,’ officially known as ‘Synod 2021-2023: For a Synodal Church.’ In brief, the process entails bishops around the world consulting with all of the baptised (parishioners and priests, monks and nuns, places of Catholic education, as well as those on the margins of the Church, those who have drifted from practice or are not directly involved in the life of the Church in a visible and obvious way) before coming together for a gathering of bishops in October 2023.
