This year, the Holy Father has urged us to reach out to our brothers and sisters who are forced to flee their homes.
Inspired by Pope Francis to respond with compassion and to call on governments to protect the human dignity of people on the move, CAFOD is asking supporters to take part in our Share the Journey campaign as we aim to walk 24,900 miles, the distance around the world.
Ann Terry, a campaigns volunteer from St Mary of the Angels in Aldridge, is taking every opportunity to clock up the miles for our Share the Journey campaign and is encouraging others in her parish to join her. She has organised a number of Share the Journey walks, including to Lichfield and the neighbouring parish of Brownhills. She will also be organising a shorter walk in the parish for those who have been unable to join her so far.
A very big thank you to Ann and all those who have walked with her, for not only putting in the miles but for showing solidarity with migrants and refugees fleeing their homes. So far Ann and her fellow walkers have managed to add an incredible 155 miles to our Share the Journey totaliser.
Can you organise a walk in your parish, school or group? Please get in touch: email@example.com
