We've got the tickets so it's not long now...


With just days to go before we fly out, a meeting of the pilgrims was held at the Rheinberger Centre to make sure we all knew who was who and what was what. I was happy there were plenty of familiar faces and it was exciting to see young and old from all parts of the Archdiocese will be journeying with us.

This is just part of our group of 35 - what a happy bunch!
Bishop Mark greeted us as our spiritual director. I am looking forward to learning from him, praying with him and experiencing this special event under his spiritual guidance.
We received our tickets, a map of Rome, the itinerary, backpack and cap – holding those goodies in our hands brought to reality the closeness of our departure.
Trish from Capital Travel went through the usual travel queries but there was one point she and Bishop Mark really emphasised - BE PUNCTUAL!
Now all I have to do is finish packing!! I am envious of those really organised people who have finished already. Organisation: what a gift. 
I'll get there eventually.
