As we head off on our Pilgrimage for 2019, we are thankful for those who can deal with the unexpected!

Day 1 was not without its drama, we had to replace our cook at the very last moment. But we still managed to get away on time and our Pilgrims from Perth and Geraldton made it to Merredin safe and sound.

We have loved getting to know each other and are already forging new friendships in our small groups. We’ve played games on the bus, had our very first reflection from our Pilgrimage journal, kicked the footy, had plenty of laughs and made a good start on our bus snack stockpile.

After a relatively short distance travelled today, we’re eager to hit the road properly tomorrow – even if it means getting up at 5am!
