Griffith, Darlington Point, Coleambally, Lockhart and Urana welcome the Cross.

The Cross and Icon certainly saw a lot of the wonderful Wagga Wagga Diocese today! This morning school children and parishioners gathered in Griffith for one last liturgy before farewelling the Cross and Icon.

We travelled to Darlington Point and gathered at the site of the old bridge that used to cross the Murrumbidgee River. We then processed through town to the church for a short liturgy and a chance for all present to venerate
the Cross.

We departed for Coleambally and were again able to witness the power the Cross has to impact on people as the local school children processed through their town. Many parishioners expressed their surprise at the impact the cross had had on them. They were so privileged to have had this special time today.

Lockhart was the next place on the Cross’s itinerary. Here we had a chance for some quiet prayer and reflection with the Cross and Icon before a time of Adoration. The young people then processed to the park praying the Stations of the Cross and reflecting on the power of the cross in our lives.

Our final destination for today was Urana. The town welcomed the Cross and Icon by celebrating Mass and then had the chance to pray before these fantastic symbols of our faith. We saw many communities come together today and it truly was a testimony to the way Christ unites us in his Cross.
