WMC: January 2017
HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY
Friday 27th January
Theme: How can life go on?
This is an occasion for all of us to think about what happens after genocide and of our own responsibilities in the wake of such crimes. In the face of the prejudice, discrimination, racism and hatred which continue today, it is a time to reflect on the past and the lessons we can learn for a better future
The chapel will be open from 10 am — 12 noon & 6 — 8 pm
There will be leaflets and a display to aid reflection.
Please drop in for a short while for some personal thought on this significant day.
