Share the Journey: Parishioners from Newmarket walked 83 miles!

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.

We invite you to join the Share the Journey campaign and show your support for refugees and migrants. Find out how you can join the campaign on CAFOD website:

Volunteers’ Week Celebration with a Share the Journey walk!

On Monday 2nd July, volunteers from CAFOD East Anglia Office celebrated a late volunteers’ week with a Share the Journey walk.

The volunteers were welcomed by Jane Crone, CAFOD East Anglia Coordinator, who shared her gratitude for having an international group of volunteers from different continents as South America, Europe and Asia.

Share the Journey cards were distributed and the group prayed to start the journey off to Grantchester. Along the way the group of volunteers took pictures and talked about the astonishing views on a lovely sunny morning.

In Grantchester the group shared tea and scones at The Orchard.


Together the group of volunteers walked 25 miles! Back in the office the group signed the Share the Journey cards.
