News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool
By Angela Pender
As a Cafod volunteer I suggested a ‘share the journey’ walk and as a result a group of 20 people representing St Paul’s and St Timothy’s and St Sebastian’s and St Oswald’s parishes walked a combined distance of 59.2 miles helping to share the journey that our fellow brothers and sisters take every day. We wanted to rise to the call of Pope Francis, to be compassionate and share hope so that refugees will know we care.
Our journey started after Mass at St Timothy’s church where Father John gave us a blessing as we began our walk. We were joined by Brother David, who lives in the parish house, and shared his story on his work with refugees.
Along the journey, we stopped at five points to reflect on God’s creation, as we walked around Croxteth Country Hall and park. Our next mission is to pass on the message of the work that Cafod do, and to promote our annual fun run on 27 December. We will walk, talk and pray that world leaders develop a united, global response which: respects human dignity, protects the vulnerable, supports host countries, keeps families together and tackles the reasons why people migrate.
