The Calais Group Report to the Congregation

Sr. Sheena George and Associates Donna Clifford, Bryan Johns and Frank McCann represented the CSJP congregation at the refugee camp in Calais France from the beginning of August through the middle of October. In the months since their return they shared their experiences and what they learned and discerned what they wanted to share. As a result, they prepared "The Calais Group Report to the Congregation." They hope it will be helpful in efforts in all regions to serve immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

Additionally, Brother Johannes who ran the St. Maria Skobtsova Catholic Worker House in Calais wrote a reflection called "The Jungle is Finished” on the destruction of the camp which happened right after the CSJPs left.

The Calais Group Report to the Congregation

"If our role as messengers of God’s good news means anything to us, the chorus of people begging for peace will touch a special place in our hearts. "
