Holywell Share the Journey

Pope Francis asked us to show compassion to those who lost everything and desperate to find somewhere safe.

Holywell parishes have responded to this message by organising a Share the Journey walk with CAFOD. 20 people walked 2 miles through Halkyn Mountain to show their solidarity with refugees and migrants and to protect the human dignity of people on the move.

The campaign was a huge success in bringing the community together. Members of the community baked some cakes for everyone to share after the walk.
Kevin McIntyre who organised the event said “It was a great success, and beautiful weather for the walk too! Some people walked straight to Mass in St Winifred’s Well afterwards where the Share the Journey walk was the hot topic!”

Share the Journey Walk in Tywyn and Abergele

A big Thank You to the 12 members from St Theresa’s Church, Abergele and Christ the King Church, Tywyn who took part in a Share the Journey Walk around Pentre Mawr Park, Abergele. They walked approximately 10 miles adding an amazing 120 miles to our online totaliser!

Felicity Bryant, who organised the event, said “Despite the heat- I did enjoy the walk. We were really pleased people came from both churches. We had time to read the five stories of such courageous and genuine people and to say the prayer as we walked around the park. It was a positive action to fill our cards at the end of the afternoon.”
