The Perth WYD Pilgrim numbers are now finalised at 72 people! Our final meeting was held on Monday 17th June. The excited pilgrims gathered to get their final practical and spiritual preparations before taking off to Brazil in mid-July.
The night included a brief Skype meeting with our Brasilia host parish too. It was great to hear from our hosts how the preparations for our arrival are coming along and get some practical tips from a local of what to expect during our visit.
The night ended with some quiet prayer time in the chapel to truly prepare our hearts and minds for the pilgrimage. This is now the time to develop our relationship with God and to consider spiritually why we are going on pilgrimage. At the heart of our pilgrimage must be a desire to develop our own relationship with God.
The pilgrims will gather one final time at the St Mary’s Cathedral for a Commissioning Mass on 7th July at 11am. All family and friends are welcome to join us for this Mass.
