October Pilgrimage Filling Fast

Six places still remain on the October pilgrimage to the Amber coast, starting at Hamburg (where the Beatles started!) and travelling by luxury coast all the way to St Petersburg, entering Russia twice. Firstly Kaliningrad, the old Prussian town of the ‘king’s mountain’ and then again into St Petersburg.   Our bus driver and guide are second to none.   Among a few of the highlights – The birthplace of Solidarty, the church of 4 young martyrs during Hitler’s reign(Lubeck) , the hill of Crosses in Lithuania (Siauliai) and the sites around Berlin are just some of the highlights.   Pictured the view of the old town of Riga.

Lent Garden

What on earth is a pile of sand doing on the marble sanctuary of the Mary MacKillop Catholic Community Church in Ballajura?  It is a “Lenten Garden”, a symbol of the season of Lent, a visual reminder that just as Jesus spent 40 days in the desert, his followers are invted, during Lent each year, to spend 40 days engaged in prayer, fasting and almsgiving.   Church goers at MacKillop are invited to light a votive candle and place it on the sand as a sign of their willingness to pray for others or a sign of their participation in the discipline of Lent!
