Share the Journey walk, Chirk, Ruabon and Llangollen

Thank you so much to Fr Anthony Nnamah and all of the parishioners from the Parish of St Richard Gwyn in Chirk, Ruabon and Llangollen, for participating in the Share the Journey campaign recently.

The walk was a huge success, with 24 people walking 3 miles meaning we can add a great 72 miles onto our online totaliser!

Sinead, who organised the walk alongside Rachael, said “The walk went really well! I thought it was easy to organise, and great fun”.

By June 2018 we reached our initial goal of 24,900 miles – the distance around the world. Now we want to walk a second time around the world. We are currently on 43,993 miles and we can add another 72 miles which we have recently walked here in Wrexham Diocese!

If you are yet to add some miles on to our totaliser, it’s not too late! Get in touch with a CAFOD volunteer in your parish to see when and where you can take part in a Share the Journey Walk or organise one yourself. It is so easy to do, just order your resources from our online shop and pick your date.

CAFOD North Wales Memorial Mass

This November, the month of remembrance, CAFOD are once again holding Memorial Masses across the country to remember our friends who have been at the heart of our work, but are no longer with us.

Our Mass in North Wales is being held on Saturday 11 November at 12pm at Cathedral Church of Our Lady of Sorrows, Regent Street, Wrexham, LL11 1RB

Everybody is welcome to join us on the day, where there will be a Book of Remembrance to honour the people we have lost this year.

These Masses are our opportunity to stop and say thank you for the incredible impact our supporters have made. Without them we would not be able to reach those most in need.

Add your loved ones name to the Book of Remembrance.
