#BringBackOurGirls one year on. Please pray for their return.

At St Paul's, our Parish Priest - Father Constantine - is Nigerian.
At St Paul's we have had quiet vigils, lit many candles.
We long for all the girls to come home, to be restored to their families.
Pray with us.


The abduction that catapulted Boko Haram into the global limelight was just the tip of almost six years of carnage from a group seeking to impose a caliphate on Africa’s largest and religiously mixed nation. Countless other families have been left adrift in a limbo of uncertainty. 

According to Amnesty International, 
2,000 women and girls have been abducted since the start of 2014. 

But as historic elections this month ushered in a new Nigerian government, many hope for a break from a past administration often shrouded in secrecy and public blunders in its dealings with the sect. A key challenge for the incoming government of Muhammadu Buhari, a former dictator who crushed a similar religious sect during the 1980s, will be how it handles Boko Haram.
