An Irish Welcome at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral

March 22, 2018  Posted in: News

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is hosting a special ‘Irish Welcome’ dinner in the Cathedral to which 280 people living in Reception and Integration Accommodation Centres across the country will be invited. The dinner will held on World Refugee Day on 20th June as part of the Refugee Food Festival, one of a series of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) initiatives taking place throughout the month, creating a true Irish Welcome for people who are seeking refuge and support in Ireland.

The dinner will be preceded by an Interfaith Prayer Service at the Famine Memorial Statues at Custom House Quay hosted by the Dublin City Interfaith Forum.  A procession will then move through the city to the Cathedral. The dinner will be produced by two UNHCR Michelin Star chefs.
