Ann Milner from the parish of Our Lady Immaculate and St Andrew in Hitchin is about to take a giant stride in response to the Pope’s invitation last year to Share the Journey. In cooperation with the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, she is organising walks between May 15 and the end of June along the London Loop, enabling supporters to show solidarity with refugees and migrants round the world.

The first walk from Elstree, close to the Parish of St Theresa of the Child Jesus will finish in the parish of Christ the King in Cockfosters. Subsequent walks round the 150 mile London Loop will take in parishes in the Enfield, Lea Valley, Harrow and Hillingdon deaneries in the Westminster Diocese as well as parishes in Brentwood and Southwark dioceses. There will be limits on the numbers who may take part in the walks and those wishing to take part may obtain details of times and venues from
