Prayers at Westbury as Cross & Icon farewelled from Tassie

The Cross & Icon’s last day in Tassie saw it travel to St Helen’s on the East Coast for a visit to the community here before it was taken to Westbury for the final event for the Archdiocese of Hobart. A beautiful evening of Taize prayer in the lovely old church was a really prayerful way to complete the 9 day journey around the state. The presence of many young pilgrims bound for Sydney at the event was a sign of the many blessings to come and the enthusiasm that these young people will inject into their parishes and communities.

The Cross & Icon had a great time in Tassie and it is really encouraging that even more pilgrims will be added to the 350-strong group who will be coming to Sydney in July. Thanks to all the local organisers and the many young people who made the last 9 days such a special part of the journey – we’ll be looking out for those lime green shirted pilgrims from the Apple Isle in Sydney!
