Pilgrimage Toolkit

If you’re participating in a fall 2018 pilgrimage, share it on social media to make more people aware of what you’re doing and get more people involved. Here are a few suggestions on how to get started:

  • Include #ShareJourney in all your social media posts.
  • Other hashtags to use: #pilgrimage, #refugees, #migrants

Post about the pilgrimage before it happens, during it and after. Here are some samples you can use:

  • I’m walking in solidarity with #migrants & #refugees everywhere. Support our sisters and brothers in their journey. Join my #pilgrimage today: http://bit.ly/2LyVcy6. #ShareJourney
  • #PopeFrancis calls #migration the challenge of our age. He invites us all to make a #pilgrimage to mark “an extraordinary moment of grace and spiritual renewal.” Will you join me? http://bit.ly/2LyVcy6 #ShareJourney
  • When we walk, we show love for our neighbors. I’m walking on [insert date] from [insert location] to [insert location] to show solidarity with #migrants & #refugees. Join me or start your own! http://bit.ly/2LyVcy6. #ShareJourney
  • Today I’m walking [insert mileage] to highlight the plight of our neighbors fleeing violence and injustice worldwide. Follow me today. #ShareJourney [attach a photo of yourself]
  • Today I walked in solidarity with the 65 million people in our world forced from their homes. #ShareJourney [attach a photo or video of your pilgrimage]
  • “Whatever you did for one of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” —Matthew 25:40. Today I walked [insert mileage]  to show that I stand with and support #migrants and #refugees all around the world. #ShareJourney

Other ideas:

  • Tell people where your pilgrimage is going
  • Tell people where to go to sign up for your pilgrimage (http://bit.ly/2LyVcy6)
  • Tell people why it’s important to make this public statement of solidarity with migrants and refugees
  • Live stream your pilgrimage on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram
  • Take photos of the pilgrimage and share on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram
  • Post a photo album after your pilgrimage
  • Tell people how making a pilgrimage makes you feel
  • Don’t forget, always include #ShareJourney in all your social media posts
