Octave Family Pilgrimage – Photos

Last Saturday 14 May, children and families from our English-speaking Community made a pilgrimage from St Alphonse to the Cathedral to celebrate the Octave of Our Lady, Mother of God.

We began in our Church, learning the story of the Octave and exploring the house of God in a treasure hunt.

We then set off on our pilgrimage through the streets of Luxembourg City, singing on the way!

At the Cathedral, we met the other language communities and were welcomed by Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, the leader of the Church in Luxembourg.

We gathered around the statue of Our Lady of Luxembourg to say special prayers and receive her blessing.

It was a beautiful, fun and memorable day!

Update – Coach to Ukraine and back appeal

In March Fr Michael told us about Aidan Geraghty who drove his coach from Ireland to the Ukraine border to rescue 160 Ukrainians as they fled their country. A donation was made to his appeal on behalf of the English-speaking community.

Aidan is driving into the Ukraine in June to provide direct assistance to the more vulnerable, who have not been able to leave their country. If you would like to make a personal donation or read more about his appeal, please click here
