Trinity Catholic School in Leamington Spa are acknowledging the Year of Mercy in a very productive and prayerful way. The school’s Pax Christi group, will be undertaking an overnight pilgrimage, from school, along 28 miles of the Grand Union Canal, to the Door of Mercy at St Chad’s. The idea of pilgrimage is especially powerful in the light of the current migration crisis as we see thousands of people forced to leave their homes.
The group are very excited to be raising money for Friends of the Holy Land and Iraqi refugees in Jordan but also are very much looking forward to the experience of pilgrimage. Principal Chris Gabbett, who completed the Camino de Santiago last year, has stressed the importance of this. He said, ‘Pilgrimage offers people of all faiths or none the chance to leave their everyday and embrace something special. I’m really excited to have the chance to support these students in this personal journey’.
