Message from our Chaplain Mairie
The same day was Holocaust Memorial Day. Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) takes place on 27 January each year and is a time to remember the millions of people murdered during the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and in the genocides which followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. Thanks to the witness of survivors and contemporary sources, this is a time when we try to learn the lessons of the past and recognise that genocide develops out of many small actions of discrimination and exclusion. There is still much to do to create a safer future and our Mission Day gives us time to reflect on this and to make personal commitments to building a better world.
