Wow, this is the first post in 2012!
Today was the East Anglian Diocesan Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, in Norfolk. We decided that this would be a fantastic opportunity to officially launch WYD 2013 and so that’s exactly what we did!
At this moment in time, there are 18 young people from East Anglia going to WYD in Rio. This is simply great, as we have found out that there are some dioceses in England and Wales that are not going, for one reason or another. We felt that it is important that we go, as Bishop Michael Evans, who died just before we left for WYD 2011, loved WYD and encouraged us all to go. We are still without a bishop, and Bishop Michael is still very much in our hearts.
Anyway, as you can see, I have attached pictures of our lovely (green….) hoodies that we will wear for fundraising, or just general get-togethers. Apologies for the red one underneath – it was very cold and wet at Walsingham today! I thought I’d put them on so that those of you who are unfortunately not coming to WYD 2013 can still share the spirit and join in! Also apologies for the quality of pictures (and the model!) but it was the only camera I had to hand!
I will keep you updated with what is happening in East Anglia for WYD Rio, like fundraising efforts and other events!
