St John's Parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes 2013 - report back
[posted 24 May 2013] Our pilgrims who travelled to Lourdes now report back on the Parish Pilgrimage which took place between Friday 26 & Tuesday 30 April 2013.
St John the Evangelist Parish have recently returned from their Jubilee Pilgrimage to Lourdes.
The pilgrimage was a very blessed time not only for the pilgrims but also for the parish which is currently celebrating it’s 150th Jubilee with many events and opportunities to remember the past and shape the future.
The Lourdes pilgrims enjoyed several days of prayer, fellowship and fun. A large candle was purchased, prayed with and lit for the parishioners and the mission of St John’s in the heart of the city of Bath.
Canon David concelebrated the Sunday International Mass with priests and bishops from around the world reminding us all that we are ‘One in the Spirit’ and that ‘barriers’ of language, culture, and fragmentation are transformed by the unifying power of the Spirit.
Our Lady poured out her blessings on us and although we were granted a few ‘soft’ days the sun shone in our hearts!
