Don Lillistone, CAFOD Parish volunteer reported:
On Sunday 20th May, 42 parishioners from St Mary’s Cathedral walked to Mass, producing a combined total of 147 miles in order to support the global campaign led by Pope Francis, Share the Journey, to stand up for the rights of refugees and migrants.
The ‘walk to Church’ Sunday is also an element of the Parish’s Livesimply action plan under the heading ‘Actions to live sustainably with creation’ and is linked, of course, to the talk Deacon David Cross gave last November on Laudato Si’ and to the recent launch in the Parish of the new Diocesan environmental policy.
The attached photo is of two parishioners having just ‘signed up’ their walking miles with Teresa.
