2 July Commissioning

Monday, June 27th, 2011

Wow it is hard to believe that we are being commisssioned on Saturday 2 July in Armidale for Madrid!!
Our gathering in Armidale will be in three parts, firstly we will look at final arrangements for our pilgrimage to Spain. This will include very important information about itineries, codes of conduct, accommodation and general travel advice. To date we are still waiting for finalisation for Valencia.
The second part will be a period of catechesis from Bishop Luc Matthys and finally we will celebrate Holy Mass before lunch.

As of today the Armidale half of the Armidale Lismore group has 18 registrations. These pilgrims are from Glen Innes, Guyra, Armidale, Tamworth, Dungowan, Nemigha and Gunnedah. What a great effort!!!!

Lismore is working hard on gathering their 20 pilgrims which is very exciting. Very soon we will begin our get togethers for our formation for the pilgrimage. Please let us know if you have any ideas for venues and times.
