Based on Elena Curti’s recent book, Fifty Catholic Churches to See Before You Die, supporters of Aid to the Church in Need will be walking 10 miles to 10 churches in London tomorrow: Saturday 21st May 2022. Starting the day at Farm Street in Mayfair at 8.30am the route will include England’s oldest Catholic church, St Etheldreda’s, Charterhouse, Tyburn Convent, St Patrick’s Soho Square, and Notre Dame de France.

There will be a stop at each location for 30 minutes with prayers (led by Father Dominic Robinson SJ in the morning and ACN director Dr Caroline Hull in the afternoon) and a short talk from Elena Curti about the churches and their history.

The weather forecast looks promising: 20 degrees with sunny intervals and gentle breeze.

All money donated to Ten Churches in Ten Miles will go ACN’s work in countries where Christians are in desperate need and suffering persecution. All around the world Christians are persecuted for their faith. Thousands are in need of food, medical supplies and shelter, things we take for granted. The Covid-19 pandemic has only made things worse.

Please consider joining the walk or sponsoring sponsoring the team if you can.
