The June parish walk will dedicated to ‘Share the Journey’ a global campaign launched by Pope Francis to stand up for the rights of refugees and migrants. The aim of the campaign is to walk 24,901 miles – the distance around the whole world and we need your help!
This is an act of solidarity to ‘Share the Journey’ with our global neighbours fleeing their homes. Every step you take together with others from across the country will send a message to world leaders that they must step up too. They need to act with courage and compassion when they agree ambitious new UN agreements on refugees and migration this year. More information on the campaign is available at the back of each church. You can help by joining a little or as much of our parish walk as you wish. Each individual contribution adds to the total mileage.
The walk begins on Saturday 23rd June 2018 meeting at St. Joseph’s immediately after 10.00am Mass, when we walk to St. Cuthbert’s. From there we will walk on to St. Godric’s and then to the CAFOD office at St. Bede’s Presbytery and from there we will return to St Joseph’s. There will be a short prayer at each stage and you can walk as many stages as you wish. Full details are on church notice-boards. Booking is essential – please contact the Parish Secretary.
