The journey begins.

Like all adventures getting there is part of the fun. Some of the Armidale pilgrims, Toowwoomba and Cairns celebrated a pre departure dinner to get to know each other. There was much laughter and enjoyment. Today we went to St Peter Julian’s for a pre departure Mass. It was the most wonderful start to the day. The ladies at the desk were so excited that we were coming to Mass that they arranged for each of us to receive a Mary MacKillop Medal and Miraculous Medal. The priest made a fuss and blessed us on our journey. It was wonderful to be so welcomed into a community even just for an hour. The reading for today was perfect, it was from Micah and finished with those wonderful words of mercy we are so familiar with, act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God.
Despite flight and traffic delays all our pilgrims from the four Dioceses are all checked in ready for our 25 hours journey to Warsaw.
