Join me on a Pilgrimage of Mercy!

Holy Door

It’s just one day, but what way better to celebrate the opening of the Year of Mercy in Melbourne than to join me on a 44km pilgrimage from my home Parish of St Joseph’s Boronia, via my worshiping parish of St Philip’s Blackburn North, to St Patrick’s Cathedral where the Archbishop is opening the Holy Door for the Year of Mercy. You can do the whole thing with me, or just join me along the path. Either way, at the other end is the opportunity for a plenary indulgence (plus a good day out!).

(Nb. Note the revised time: the Pilgrimage will now leave Boronia at 6am so that we can arrive at the Cathedral in time for the 4pm Holy Hour of Adoration. This will also provide an opportunity for confession for those seeking the plenary indulgence. Mass is at 6:30pm in the Cathedral.)
