So, a little un-seasonally, here is news from our Carol Service back in December.
It was a pleasure to welcome students from the Ahlul Bayt Society (Shia Muslim) who were leading the ‘Hungry for Justice’ campaign.
Students from the Ahlul Bayt and Catholic Societies joined together to take the collection – raising £270 for the campaign. A great sum from a service that celebrates the birth of Jesus – in the poverty of a stable and about to flee with his family as refugees.
Al-Mizan is ‘the only Muslim grant-funder to individuals in the UK, regardless of their faith, culture or background.’ Trussell Trust is a Christian charity with a similar ethos.
All this alongside glorious music from Imperial College Choir. And thanks too to students from Cath Soc who helped celebrate the international dimension of life at Imperial by leading prayers were led by in Mandarin, Cantonese, German, Spanish, French, Polish and English.
