Pilgrims’ Return

The Pilgrims have returned from their recent trip to the Holy Land.

Dom Leo Maidlow Davis led a group of 33. He said of the experience, “Everyone on the pilgrimage felt that it was an experience that would change them in some important way, although how will take time to discern. We were taken into the world of the Gospels and to Jesus; the events of two thousand years ago seem close in the Holy Land.”

As pilgrim, Rina Bird, wrote, “I would encourage anyone who is able, to make their own pilgrimage there. Without exception, everyone in our group was astounded at how much they learnt, and how their understanding of the Bible  had dramatically improved.”
