Champagnat Pilgrimage 2007 at Lavalla in Southern FranceTwenty four pilgrims from Australia will be commencing their 2010 Pilgrimage to Champagnat Country in France, Rome, Guatemala and El Salvador. We leave on Saturday, 27 March and return on Sunday, 18 April 2010.
A recent edition of Encounter on ABC Radio bore testimony to another pilgrimage undertaken by Christians as they walked from Ballarat to Bendigo. These participants suggested pilgrimage includes a search for the holy.
This is certainly one of our aims as we head to Europe and see the places where Marcellin Champagnat responded to the call of God by establishing his first schools.
The ABC programme may be helpful in preparing us for our pilgrimage as well as of interest to other readers. It can be accessed at the following address: http://www.abc.net.au/rn/encounter/stories/2010/2829128.htm
