Share the Journey walk

This fall, we launched the Share the Journey campaign and invited Canadians to walk in solidarity with the 68.5 million forced migrants around the world. Many of you answered the call and our collective actions are adding up!

We’ve walked 40,075 km! How far will we go?

Walks - Share the Journey

Canadians took up the challenge to walk the equivalent of the Earth’s circumference and they succeeded! With many more walks on the way, how far will we go?

Jeremy Laurie, Development and Peace Animator for British Columbia and Yukon
Gospel: Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32

Peaceful dwelling places

Through the parable of the Prodigal Son, Jesus invites us to reflect on God’s unfailing love for His children. Although the son squandered his inheritance and became destitute, he was greeted with profound compassion after freely deciding to return home. This powerful example of God’s mercy is also a testament to the importance of family and home.
