Led by Delegate of the Diocesan Administrator Rev Christopher de Souza PP, Greg Whitby, Chancery representatives, Catholic Education Office leaders and a small group of local principals are currently on pilgrimage to Jordan, Israel, Assisi and Rome.
There have been five pilgrimages in total, including journeys following in the footsteps of St Paul and St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.
Each pilgrimage has provided a powerful formation experience, strengthening the faith of local Catholic leaders. In addition to supporting principals in their work of evangelisation, pilgrimages have also forged and strengthened collaboration and community between participants.
Desiree Rashada, Manager of People and Culture, will be sharing with us a small snippet each day of their experiences while on pilgrimage.
We travelled to the summit of Mt Tabor and celebrated a beautiful Mass around The Transfiguration. Onward to the town of Nazareth where the annunciation occurred, which we timed perfectly walking out of Mary’s house to the bells signalling the Angelus. Then lunch and on to Cana, where Jesus performed his first miracle – transforming water into wine at the wedding feast.
