Cross & Icon's day by the water in Sorrento & Geelong

Today’s events began at Sullivan’s Bay with a sunrise liturgy by the sea before the small crowd that had gathered processed the Cross & Icon to the parish at Sorrento. Here the primary school students gathered for a mass, in which the students enacted the gospel story of the visitation in great style! It was lovely to see these students interacting with the Cross & Icon in a most prayerful way when it came time for veneration.
Next the Cross & Icon were boarded on the ferry bound for Queenscliff, before being taken to Geelong where a procession and a liturgy took place overlooking the beach.
Later in the day many local parishes gathered in the Basilica of St Mary for a youth event that featured mass, Stations of the Cross and prayers prepared by the young people of the Geelong area.
In all places today the Cross & Icon continued to spread Christ’s message of love for all people and their arrival celebrated by some great liturgies and creative ideas from the people of the Melbourne Archdiocese.
