Share the journey in Hexham & Newcastle

Record numbers of people are being forced from their homes due to war, persecution, natural disaster and poverty. We need as many parishes and schools in the diocese of Hexham and Newcastle to get walking with Pope Francis and all those people displaced by war, persecution, natural disasters and poverty. We need to open the ears of national governments and urge them to legislate to protect the dignity of every refugee.

Download your organiser’s guide from our website and get walking today. Let us know what you are doing so that we can share it with others.


St Joseph’s- Sponsored Silence

Pupils and staff at St Joseph’s Primary School in Jarrow held a sponsored silence during Lent and raised £475 for CAFOD’s Lent Give it up campaign. This is great news and the sum raised will be doubled by UKAID so your £475 is now worth £950!! Well done to everyone. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
