Stories of Welcome: Hosting asylum seekers – St Mary of the Angels, Bayswater

Fr Keith Baltrop, Parish Priest of St Mary of the Angels, Paddington talks to us about hosting asylum seekers through the JRS (Jesuit Refugee Service UK) ‘At Home’ hosting project.

This video is a part of “Stories of Welcome”: a series of five videos from church communities across London and east Surrey welcoming refugees, migrants and asylum seekers.

Produced for Refugee Week 2022, Caritas Westminster (the social justice charity of the Diocese of Westminster), and the Church of England Dioceses of Southwark and London worked together to collect and celebrate stories of welcome from church communities.
