Handover...Roadhouse style!

After a busy year as WYD co-ordinator of the Geraldton diocese, Fr Robert was proud to welcome the Cross & Icon into his community at Northampton this morning. Students and parishioners of St Mary’s gathered for morning Mass, before seeing us off to our next location.

We hit the road for a 430km drive up to Carnarvon, a very scenic little town about six hours north of Geraldton. On the way we stopped off at another Roadhouse for a handover ceremony (on the red earth) to the youth of Carnarvon. After sharing in a tasty steak sandwich for lunch, the Pilgrims received the Cross & Icon and we were on our way!

The Church filled up fast for Carnarvon’s first event tonight, Mass followed by a prayer Vigil. The community left tonight’s event excited about another full day with the Cross & Icon tomorrow…
