Walking around the World

by

This year a group of FCJs, Companions in Mission and friends are planning to walk 1000 Miles in solidarity with so many people across the world who are forced to leave their homes and journey across countries, oceans and continents in search of a place to build a life that is secure. An activity which for so many of us is a pleasant pastime and a luxury is far from that for so many in our world.

What difference does walking make? Well, honestly, not much! But in walking together we are building unity across our Society and encouraging others to build community. We are from many different countries; Myanmar, Romania, England, Ireland, Belgium, Indonesia, Malta, Spain, USA, Philippines, Canada… the walking is fun, a bit of a challenge and a talking point – it brings us together even whilst we are so geographically spread. We will share photos, stories, encounters along the way.

There will be at least 17 of us walking – so that will get us more than twice around the world!!! If you would like to join in, message us on Facebook.

It’s our Bicentenary year, and our General Chapter calls us to do all we can to offer compassion and solidarity to Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, and so we are supporting Jesuit Refugee Service by sharing a Just Giving page – click on the link or image below to visit our page and find out more, or to make a donation to this worthwhile charity. Our target is £2020!

    Hello Lynne and greetings from Australia.

    I have passed this message on to our CiM groups here, asking them to discuss it at their first meetings in February. Holidays mean no meetings I January.

    I’d like to think that there will be a positive response from some of the CiM.

    I think this idea is so creative and can offer a different approach to apostolic endeavours.

    In companionship,

    Pat CiM
