Diocesan Pilgrimage 2015

Report by Parish Pilgrims



Some seven parishioners joined the Pilgrimage this year along with seven hundred or so others from across the Diocese.  Always enjoyable and often moving, this year was no exception.



Some rain early on was  actually beneficial as it kept us from overheating.





Mgr Chris Lightbound provided one of the highlights at the Opening Catechesis, giving an absorbing reflection on his own formation in the faith.
