SANCTUARY

Sanctuary

As far back as c. 300 AD when Alban, Britain’s first saint, gave shelter to a Christian priest fleeing religious persecutors, St Albans has been home to diverse groups of people.

Some of the Jewish people living in St Albans belong to families who came to Britain as refugees.  Many feel fortunate that their families were given sanctuary here, and hope that this country will continue to welcome and offer safety to people fleeing violence and persecution.
