This year, Development and Peace is striving to bring greater attention to the world’s refugee crisis.

St. Anthony Daniel Parish will be participating in this collective walk on October 21st after the 10:30 a.m. Mass. There will be options for walkers and non-walkers. You can walk as little or as much as you like, and we’ll have multiple rest stops. After the walk, we’ll upload our total mileage to the Development and Peace website to help get us “around the Earth.”

Refugees flee their homelands when no other options remain; when staying would otherwise lead to displacement or death. As an act of solidarity with the world’s 68.5 million forced migrants, Development and Peace would like the collective “we” to walk the circumference of the Earth (40,075km) by August 31, 2019.
