Final stop for Bunbury Diocese as Cross comes to Esperance

Today began with a Mass around the Cross & Icon to conclude the community of Lake Grace’s time with the symbols.

The Cross & Icon then travelled around 370km to come to the beautiful seaside town of Esperance. An excited crowd greeted the Cross & Icon outside the church and as many hands as physically possible were used to process the symbols around the church grounds. Many primary school students and young people (some of whom are getting very excited about coming to Sydney for WYD!) processed the Cross & Icon into the church for a lively Mass, celebrated by Bishop Holohan, which also included time for veneration. The community then gathered for a shared dinner in the hall.

Tonight’s mass marked the final event in the Bunbury Diocese after 8 days where many towns, schools and communities were able to experience the power of the Cross & Icon. During our days here I’ve been really amazed by the great events, great people, great enthusiasm and great faith we have witnessed in this Diocese, and I wish all the people of the Diocese well in the lead up to WYD in Sydney!
