Sheffield father and son step out in solidarity with the poor

Martin Desforges at Padley Chapel, Hallam Diocese

 Martin and Ged Desforges are celebrating a special anniversary with CAFOD by taking part in a pilgrimage from Hallam to Holy Island.   Martin said “having collected the cross of St. Cuthbert from Durham for the start of its long journey north to Holy Island, it seemed appropriate to make a journey on foot to Padley Chapel, the site of the annual diocesan pilgrimage to commemorate the martyrdom of Robert Ludlam and Nicholas Garlick. CAFOD Supporters from all over the North East will be taking part in walks and events of solidarity with the poorest people in the world to mark the 50th Anniversary of CAFOD. A special Mass of thanksgiving will be concelebrated with Bishop John and Fr Durkin at Blessed Sacrament Church, Athersley on Monday 13th June at 6.30pm and all are invited to attend.
