Stepping out of our Church - A walk for the mission of the Church

As the disciples were sent out into the world, so are we, particularly in this year of mission. This Palm Sunday weekend Deacon John is on a mission, walking between all our parishes in communion, to demonstrate in a physical way that we are one community with a mission to bring Christ out of the church and into the world. Along the way there will be services of Morning Prayer and the Stations of the Cross as well as Sunday Mass. You can also join John and walk the last 5 miles between St Augustine’s and Our Lady of Lourdes from 2pm on Sunday afternoon.

The route can be found here:

You can help by sponsoring John, not with money, but with your prayer and actions, turn over for ideas of thing you could do.
