St Mary’s, Harborne, Walk for Water

St Mary’s walkers at the end of their walk in Birmingham

On a showery Sunday morning a group of 50 parishioners from St Mary’s Harborne walked alongside the canal into Birmingham in solidarity with those who walk every day in search of clean water.  Abigail McMillan, part of the CAFOD group in the parish said, “it was a lovely walk, we stopped to pray as a group, we sang hymns through the tunnels and passed out Thirst for Change postcards along the way.  The children really enjoyed spending time together and it is wrong that children have to walk this distance and much further every day and in much less convivial circumstances”

There is still time to be part of the Thirst for Change campaign, go to www.cafod.org.uk/thirstforchange
