Pilgrim friends reunite in Madrid
From St Monica’s North Parramatta Parish Priest Fr Fernando Montano and Catholic Education Office's Richard Blissenden
Our day was filled with increasing excitement as we got closer and closer to Madrid.
With our bus pilgrimage coming to an end, we spent time praying the rosary, singing hymns and saying goodbye to our 'fantastico' escort Ffilipe.
A countdown began using the kilometre signs heading into the city...followed by an enormous cheer when we saw the city skyline. We had a chance to explore the city, have dinner and share some of the excitement in Sol Square.
As the first of the Parramatta groups to arrive, we had a long wait to welcome our Holy Lands pilgrimage friends.
Here are their backpacks!!!!!
