The Cross and the Blue Mountains

In the crisp air of the Blue Mountains, with the background of the Three Sisters, the journey of the Cross and Icon continued.

Back at Katoomba Parish Mass was celebrated and there was a time of prayer and veneration. The Cross and Icon were then symbolicly handed over to youth from the Sale Diocese who had travelled all the way to receive them!

The oldest Catholic Church in the Mountains also hosted the Cross and Icon in a beautiful candlelit prayer service. Later the Blackheath Parish had a time of Taize music, prayer and the Stations of the Cross. It was wonderful to be present and feel the community spirit around the Cross.

It was great having the WYD Cross and Icon in Blackheath/Mt Victoria. It really gave us a concrete connection to the preparations for WYD. Even though we are too far from Sydney city to host visitors during the WYD week, I am sure we will enjoy our Lithuanian visitors the week before.
