Parishes in Bedford will be uniting to prayer for refugees . Using the Lampedusa Cross and pilgrimage for the year of Mercy. The idea of pilgrimage is especially powerful in the light of the current migration crisis. More people than ever before in human history are now on forced journeys far from home.
This pilgrimage is a way for us to show solidarity with all those fleeing war, poverty and persecution in our world. Along the way, we reflect, “Who is my neighbour?”.
There will be opportunity of people to write messages of hope which will be given to refugees later in the year.

Venue : Christ the King Church, Harrowden Road, Bedford, MK42 0SP
Time : starts at 10 am. Pilgrimage in the Parish Hall, with refreshment break during meet. Noon Benediction is in Church, to end.
All Welcome !
