Anniversary Prayer Vigil at Derwentside Immigration Removal Centre (DIRC).
A monthly prayer vigil has been held outside the barrier to the DIRC for the last year. The purpose is to pray for the women who are detained there, to stand in solidarity with them and to witness by our presence that their detention is inhumane, unjust and incompatible with our faith, which calls us to recognise the unique dignity of each person. The first anniversary vigil takes place on Sunday 5 June, Pentecost Sunday at 3.00pm. All are welcome to come along to a short prayer service which incorporates a time of silence. The postcode for the Centre on Corbridge Road, Medomsley is DH8 6QY. If you are unable to join in person, please join in prayer from home at 3.00pm. Future dates planned are Sunday’s 3 July, 7 August, 4 September.
