Mary MacKillop pilgrimage – Eden
10 August 2019
The pilgrimage, now in its third year, will be held on August 10 with Archbishop Christopher Prowse participating once again.
Archbishop Christopher has urged people from across the Archdiocese to join him in what he describes as a wonderful and significant pilgrimage.
“I’m very keen to develop a great love for Mary MacKillop, as she so loved Eden,” he said.
“It was the place of great devotion to Mary due to her mother’s death in the ocean nearby. The parishioners were most hospitable to her mother.
“St Mary of the Cross MacKillop never forgot their generosity and hospitality of her mother’s body at the time of her death. The Josephite Sisters have been there ever since.”
Those wishing to walk assemble at the Eden Football oval at 11am and walk to the Eden church and MacKillop hall. Mass at 12 noon with Archbishop, usually plenty of other priests too. Lunch provided after Mass.
- 11.00am (optional) Pilgrims Walk from Eden AFL Grounds to Our Lady of the Sea Church.
