WALK FOR BLESSINGS In response to the encouragement from our
Bishop to make a pilgrimage during the Year of Faith to one of the designated
churches, we would like to invite our parishioners to a Lenten Pilgrimage to
the Our Lady of the Rosary Shrine in Verdun on Saturday 9th March.
There will be Mass
at 7 am at St. Dominic’s as usual. We will begin our Pilgrimage at Mt. Tabor
Moravian Church at 9.00 am. If there is a need we will organise transportation
from St. Dominic’s to Mt. Tabor and back from Verdun. Alternatively
parishioners may drive to Mt. Tabor where parking will be available.
We will walk to Verdun a distance of 2.2
miles (approximately 1 hour walking). While walking we will meditate on the
passion of Christ and carry the cross. In Verdun we will celebrate a special
Mass. Afterwards we plan a picnic, please pack a picnic lunch.
By participating in the pilgrimage you
can obtain a special blessing and plenary indulgence. "...Plenary
Indulgence for the temporal punishment of sins, imparted by the mercy of God
and applicable also to the souls of deceased faithful, may be obtained by all
faithful who, truly penitent, take Sacramental Confession and the Eucharist and
pray in accordance with the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff."
Therefore we are
walking to the church of Our Lady of Rosary in Verdun on Saturday 9th of March.
