World Day Against Human Trafficking

July 30

Today is the United Nations’ World Day Against Trafficking in Persons

As the Patron Saint of all Victims and Survivors of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, St Josephine Bakhita (Feast Day 8 February) is one of our ‘Safeguarding Saints’ – and this is a prayer for her intercession:

O God, who led Saint Josephine Bakhita from abject slavery to the dignity of being your daughter and a bride of Christ, grant, we pray, that by her example we may show constant love for the Lord Jesus crucified, remaining steadfast in charity and prompt to show compassion.
Amen.

For concerns about the safety of people in immediate danger through Human Trafficking, please call 999. For any other Trafficking or Safeguarding information or concerns in the Diocese of Leeds, please contact Diocese of Leeds Safeguarding.

Safeguarding is Everybody’s Business!

St Josephine Bakhita: pray for us.
