Medaille Trust

This week we keep the feast of St. Josephine Bakhita who was trafficked from Africa to Europe as a modern slave. Her feast day is a day of prayer for all victims of trafficking. The Medialle Trust, which we have supported in recent years during Lent is working to eradicate modern slavery before 2025.  It is founded in response to Pope Francis words: ‘The problem is not in the opposite lane, it involves us. We are not permitted to look elsewhere and declare ignorance or our innocence‘.  Please remember to pray for the victims of modern slavery, there will almost certainly be some here in Huntingdon hidden away.  Find out more at
