St. Monica’s Housing Ltd., is a small charity in Leeds which provides temporary accommodation for destitute asylum seekers. We have two houses, one in Beeston the other in Harehills. In all we have places for ten residents, presently all women. St. Monica’s was founded about ten years ago by the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Justice and Peace Commission of the Catholic Diocese of Leeds responding to Christ’s call to support those in need , for example in Matthew 25: 35-40. The Diocese supports the charity by providing the two properties at a peppercorn rent. Normally, residents are given a six month stay in one of our houses, but in 2020, because of the virus many have been with us for much longer.
In 2021 we hope to find an affordable third house, perhaps outside of Leeds and possibly for male asylum seekers.
Please thank God for all those involved in the work of St. Monica’s and that we may find a third property. Please pray for all asylum seekers wherever they are and for peace and justice in the world so that the work of our charity will one day not be needed.
