Over a hundred people completed a four-mile walk in Birmingham on Saturday (28 April) to show solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers.

A total of 125 people walked from Cannon Hill Park to St Chad's Cathedral. 

The group of 125 people were joined by Archbishop Bernard Longley, from the Archdiocese of Birmingham, and also several refugees, who told their stories at each of the prayer-stops made.

These were Birmingham's Central Mosque, St Anne's Digbeth and St Philip's Cathedral. 

The walk finished at St Chad's Cathedral with Taize-style prayer, and the gospel reading of the Flight into Egypt - when Jesus, Mary and Joseph became refugees. This was read not only in English but also in the language of some of the refugees.

500 miles was added to the CAFOD Campaign 'Walk Around the World' to show solidarity with refugees.
