The English pilgrims had an inspiring and moving experience during the Bicentenary pilgrimage to France 16-26 August 2017.
The young people were accompanied by Sr Cathy, Sr Carolyn and Francesca. Joining the international gathering of the Assumption community, they walked in the footsteps of St Marie-Eugenie and Sr Therese-Emmanuel, while reflecting on the theme of living life to the fullest.
Anthony, one of the pilgrims said: “The highlights of the pilgrimage for me were making new friends from around the world and being able to grow stronger in faith. It was a very enriching experience, especially when we were in our ‘community of life’ as we were able to express our feelings and open up to each other.”
42 delegates from 5 provinces gathered for the weekend session on 'The Culture of Young People & Vocations' in Bordeaux, France 9-11 February 2018.
