'Pilgrimage' to the Eternal City, Rome April 2014

Pilgrims lead by Fr Schaefer and Fr Parker (Assistant Curate of Worksop Priory) from both Goldthorpe and Hickleton to Rome between 28th April to 2nd May 2012. We were fortunate to arrive the day after the canonisation for Saint John Paul II and Saint John XXIII and Rome was buzzing with the excitement and thousands of Pilgrims.

Below are a few snaps of our week together.

More pictures to follow and if you have some to contribute, please contact me and we'll arrange how!
