Parishioners from Newmarket joined our Global campaign Share the Journey.
On Saturday 23rd June at 10am the group – formed of 9 adults, five children and a dog – started the walk from Our Lady and St Philip Neri in Kirtling. The weather was glorious, and after one mile walking, another parishioner and his dog joined the group.
The group carried their own version of the Lampedusa cross made from driftwood. Along the way they stopped to share stories from the CAFOD resources. One member from the group who was in Ireland that day walked 6 miles in the Burren (southwest of Ireland) at the same time as the group was walking in the UK. Together they walked 83 miles on a lovely journey!
The group finished the walk at Our Lady Immaculate and Saint Etheldreda in Newmarket where a Mass was celebrated with other parishioners, followed by a bring and share lunch.
