WYD Pilgrims Prepare
Bathurst PIlgrims will will fly out for World Youth Day on 14th July 2016. On the weekend of the 18th - 19th June, they gathered in Mudgee to learn more about the upcoming pilgrimage to Rome, Warsaw, Lodz and Krakow.
While the weather was far from warm, the welcome from the Parish and the good cheer of the pilgrims made up for any issues with the temperature. All pilgrims (except Rachel Lonard and Fr Greg Bellamy) were present for the weekend and spent time learning about Poland, WYD practicalities and, of course, getting to know each other.
On the Saturday night, a Polish feast was prepared by the pilgrim group, which was a fantastic way of entering into the spirit of the pilgrimage.
