Three months away from parish communities has been a long time and the Justice and Peace group at Sacred Heart parish -Leighton Buzzard are planning an event to help parishioners reconnect and unite with one another and at the same time to help people in dire need around the world by raising money for CAFODs coronavirus appeal.
Families and friends are encouraged to join in the parish’s 2.6km challenge walk/jog/run. For the keener and more able, they can go round more than once! To maintain social distancing, the set-off time will be staggered. The route will start and end at the church and go via the local roads and down by the river; maps will be provided. There will even be a chance for private prayer in the church which will be opened throughout the morning .
Date – Saturday 18 July
Time – anything between 9am-12noon
Starting point – Sacred Heart Church, 5 Beaudesert, Leighton Buzzard LU7 1HZ
It is hoped that this event will be the first of many to help the parish reconnect both in prayer and action. Fr John, the parish priest, has already said he will be walking (not jogging!). Why not join him?
