CAFOD parish volunteer Bernadette Roberts, together with members of the St Gregory’s parish community are hosting a Year of Mercy CAFOD Pilgrimage Service in solidarity with refugees
All are invited to a Year of Mercy CAFOD Pilgrimage Service at St Gregory’s Catholic Church in Preston on Thursday 4 August at 7pm. All are welcome, with refreshments served afterwards.
This service will include prayers, refugee facts and stories, and an opportunity to reflect on Scripture and the recent teachings of Pope Francis. There’ll be an opportunity to show solidarity with refugees by writing messages of hope. These messages will be dedicated at the end of the Year of Mercy and shared by CAFOD with refugees from all over the world.
The idea of pilgrimage is especially powerful in the light of the current migration crisis. More people than ever before in human history are now on forced journeys far from home. This pilgrimage is a way for us to show solidarity with all those fleeing war, poverty and persecution in our world. Along the way, we will reflect, “Who is my neighbour?”
Please come along and join us in prayer and reflection. Thank you.
