Clergy and Parishioners Join Refugee Walk in Cork

A number of clergy and parishioners from the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross took part in the recent Silent Walk marking World Refugee Day (20th June).  People brought along old shoes and at the end of the walk left them at the gates of the park on Grand Parade as a visible witness to the journeys on foot of many refugees.
