One day closer to Barangaroo...

Today was day 4 of this historic 15 day walk of the WYD Cross into Sydney!

We started off today at Joe Broad Reserve Mt Pritchard, with a group of locals and a few keen pilgrim walkers from yesterday.
Our first destination was Our Lady of Mt Carmel Parish. There we joined in a lovely time of prayer with a large parish community, before hitting the pavement bound for Freeman Catholic College.
On the way Pilgrims joined in prayer and song around the Cross, with various people waiting to greet us (and the Cross) along the way.
Once at the College, we stopped for another time of prayer with the community and then shared in a pilgrim lunch together.

Our final leg of the day was from Allambie Reserve Oval to Mary Immaculate Parish Bossley Park. During this leg I had some great discussions with Pilgrims who had spent a few days walking with us. It’s incredible to keep hearing the way in which this Cross continues to touch lives wherever it travels!
Our team of volunteers finished off for the day, however the action continued. The Parish community took part in an all-night Vigil around the Cross & Icon, which started with an evening Mass.
