Flags of Welcome – Refugee Week 2021

June 17 @ 8:00 am - June 20 @ 5:00 pm

Flags of Welcome – Refugee Week 2021

Recently we have seen the effects of inequalities in our society but also how interconnected we all are.  We have seen how coming together, with all our individual differences, can create a ‘bigger us’, can empower us all to move forward, do amazing things.

This year the theme for Refugee Week is ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ or ‘Walking Together’.  In the spirit of this we invite you to show your support for those coming to the city, fleeing from violence and persecution, by ‘planting’ a flag of welcome as part of our installation.

Flags are available in the Cathedral from Thursday 17 June to Sunday 20 June inclusive, between 2pm and 5pm.
