Ukrainian Christmas Event at the Focolare Centre

Fantastic, well attended, emotional and sad in some parts, powerful, well organised/ spontaneously put together; so much could be said about a wonderful Ukrainian Christmas Event at the Focolare Centre, which took place today.
Although we can’t escape the fact that the war in Ukraine continues and that its impact on Ukraine and the whole world have been devastating, it was so important to come together to celebrate Christmas; finding joy in simple and little things is so vital for our self-care, sense of togetherness and emotional wellbeing.
There were carols, fantastic food, presentations about Ukrainian traditions and plenty of people; children, host families, local residents, all who wanted to show much needed support and solidarity with our Ukrainian friends and neighbours.
A massive thank you to the Hertfordshire County Council for a small pot of funding and to all the organisers.
