chef Claudia Lawrence has been remembered by the Archbishop of York in
his daily Advent message.
Dr John Sentamu, who has been posting a daily message on his website,
appealed to people to pray for families facing separation from loved
said: “Christmas is a time when families are able to gather and enjoy
spending time together. And yet, there are so many for whom Christmas
reminds them that someone is missing from the gathering. And it is to
this world of hurt that God was pleased to send His Son so that there
would always be a way back for our relationships with God and with
pray for those who are missing – for Claudia Lawrence and for Madeleine
McCann – abducted from their families. Let us pray for families facing
separation from loved ones this Christmas.”
message came as Claudia’s father, Peter Lawrence, prepared to give a
press conference on Monday to make another appeal for information about
his daughter’s disappearance.
