Three Parishes’ Walk of Creation

Walking across Cambridge in prayer and fellowship for the World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation on Saturday 2 September.
(See below for various start times 10:15am – 3:30pm).

With the themes in Pope Francis’ ground-breaking encyclical Laudato Si’ very much in mind, join us for a walk through some of the parts of our city that highlight the issues the Holy Father has written about, where we will pray and reflect: quiet, green spaces and a few quite the contrary.

Our walk takes us between the three Catholic parish churches in Cambridge, pausing several times on our journey to listen to short extracts from the encyclical, reflecting and praying for our common home, the Earth.

Join us for the whole day or just for the first or second part of our walk.

Families are welcome! Our schedule gives time to walk with children, and pause for reflection.

Cambridge Creation Walk - Part Two

Stations of the Cross – Friday 10 March


This evening (Friday 10 March, 19:30) our Stations of the Cross share Jesus’ final steps toward Good Friday, and also reflect on the experiences of those who fall and thirst.

CAFOD are leading this liturgy of Stations of the Cross, the reflections of which give us a contemporary echo of the pain and suffering experienced by people around the world, giving us a fresh perspective through which to remember Jesus’ suffering for us.

Today – Friday 10 March – is Lent Fast Day, when we go without so others don’t have to. And the money we save, and our donations, go to help CAFOD with their work.
