by the end of June.

Share the Journey: 8,000 miles and counting!

We are inviting you to join us around the world on a Share the Journey walk before the UN compacts are signed in September

As summer gently approaches, the opportunity to do a Share the Journey walk may become more inviting!

We’ve nearly reached the Pacific Islands on the online totaliser and reflect on stages we’ve already passed – The Philippines, Myanmar, Bangladesh… We walk in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who are forced to flee all over the world.  

Could you organise a walk in your parish and show our world leaders that you care?


The Eucharist and Justice: a resource for parishes
Bishop John Arnold celebrates the Eucharist

CAFOD’s Theology Programme have put together five workshops on the broad theme of Eucharist and Justice in recognition of the Eucharistic Congress and as a resource for parishes. The workshops cover the themes of reconciliation and peace-building; celebrating the relationship between creation and humanity; a kingdom of welcome and hospitality; common union and being in solidarity. To hear more please register for a webinar on 27 June from 11am-12pm

Volunteers needed for Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool, 7/8 September 

CAFOD will be holding a workshop and display as part of the Parallel Event programme that is happening alongside the official Congress. If you have missed out on being a delegate from your parish why not come and volunteer with us and experience the many fringe events in the city centre that weekend. We need you to help in our venue (church close to the Cathedral) and/or to act as a steward. Please email Bridget on to offer your help. Travel expenses will be paid.
