In a vibrant celebration of community, faith, and fitness, The Catholic News invites runners, and walkers of all backgrounds to participate in the Steps for Hope 5k Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, May 11.

Set against the backdrop of Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain, with the starting point opposite Archbishop’s House, this event promises to be filled with fun for participants and a medal for all registered finishers.

As we eagerly anticipate the Jubilee Year 2025 with the theme Pilgrims of Hope, the Steps for Hope 5k serves as a spirited prelude to the forthcoming celebrations.

A Jubilee Year is a special holy year of grace and pilgrimage in the Catholic Church which typically takes place once every 25 years.

Whether you’re Catholic or non-Catholic, a seasoned athlete, or a casual jogger, all are welcome to join in the 5k. Cash will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers, as well as special prizes for parishes and schools.

General Manager of Catholic Media Services Ltd, Kathryn Tardieu said, “The Steps for Hope 5k isn’t just about competition—it’s about coming together as a community to promote health, wellness, and a shared sense of purpose. By taking part you’ll not only be making a step towards personal fitness goals but also contributing to the collective spirit of hope and anticipation for the Jubilee Year ahead.”

So, mark your calendars, gather your friends and family, and join us for a memorable day of fun, fellowship, and fitness at the Steps for Hope 5k Fun Run/Walk. Together, let’s stride towards a future filled with promise, unity, and boundless hope.


Individuals can register NOW for $150 at

Schools and parishes will be contacted about their registration process as a group, for the special rate of only $120.

With the 5k more than two months away there’s ample time to plan and prepare to be there on May 11. Look out for more in the weeks to come in The Catholic News and on social media.
