A group of twenty-six parishioners from our two churches journeyed to Rome for the Parish’s Annual Pilgrimage in October, visiting many of the holy sites as well as historical locations over a four day stay.
One of the highlights was their reception at the Anglican Centre in Rome, the permanent presence of the Anglican Communion in the city. The group were the first visitors to be welcomed by Archbishop Ian, who had
only started in his new post that day, flying in from his home on Mauritius the previous day. The group joined regular attendees at the Tuesday Eucharist service and stayed on for a delicious lunch.
The group thanks the centre for their warm hospitality and wishes Archbishop Ian and Mrs Ernest a holy and fruitful ministry in their new posting.
