Year of Mercy Pilgrims

We have been able to welcome different groups coming on pilgrimage to our church for the Year of Mercy and passing through the Holy Door. A fortnight ago, during 24 Hours for the Lord, a large number of people came to make their confession during the day. Among them were the girls of the Rose Round, who walked here from Marston.  IMG_0610

After Mass, confession and the procession through the Holy Door, the girls walked on to the College at Littlemore, which is also a place of pilgrimage for the Jubilee.

Today, St Joseph's Day, saw Fr Nazarius Mgungwe, Parish Priest of the Sacred Heart, Blackbird Leys, come for Mass, confession and the procession through the Holy Door with his parishioners. Tomorrow, on Palm Sunday, we look forward to welcoming fifty Filipinos living in London, who form the United Kingdom Candelaria Quezon Association.
