CAFOD Middlesbrough Just One World Pilgrimage – 26 June to 2 July 2011

Walking with the Northern Saints

 To mark 50 years since CAFOD was established by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, we will begin a year of pilgrimage towards 2012; linking with the Leeds and Hexham and Newcastle pilgrimages to the Holy Island on July 9 2011. As our diocese has a rich heritage of Saints we join with them in faith as we follow in their footsteps.

We would like you to share this pilgrimage with us either by supporting us in prayer or joining with us on the pilgrimage itself. You can join us for an hour, a day or the whole way! If you come along at any point along the way, you will be very welcome!
