Pilgrimage for fathers of families

“Saint Joseph, man of silence”

Pilgrimage for fathers in Luxembourg (Saturday 17 March 2018)

For the third time since its inauguration in 2016, the  “Marche des pères de famille” is being organised for 17 March 2018 (the nearest Saturday to the Feast of St Joseph, celebrated on the 19th March).

Around 30 dads (mostly in their mid 30s-40s) will be walking in the north of the country heading to the Abbaye de Clervaux. This is a great opportunity for dads in our parish to join this pilgrimage, and you are most welcome !

The meeting point is at the Gare de Luxembourg at 7h30. You will be back at around 18h00 in Luxembourg-city. Several priest will be joining. All the details may be found in the attached invitation.

Fr Ed adds:
On a personal note: I’ve accompanied this walk in 2016 & 2017, and can highly recommend it on several levels: a good walk, in picturesque surroundings with plenty of fresh air; a good walk with other fathers of families; an informal opportunity to share on the level of faith; and last, but not least, the picnic is great, and the reception by the monks  at Clervaux is warm.

Sadly this year I can’t walk the walk as I have the Mass for St Patrick’s Day at 11:00 on the same day. Hopefully, I’ll be there next year!

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
