Day 44 of Pilgrimage – approaching Wangaratta

Friday 2 October 2020

When I finish walking tomorrow – Saturday 3 October, I will have walked 45 days so a total of 450k which brings me exactly to the door of Holy Trinity Cathedral, Wangaratta. I look forward to having the opportunity once COVID-19 restrictions have lifted of visiting this Cathedral in person but for now their website is as close as I can get:

The Very Reverend Ken Goodger is the Dean of the Cathedral. Ken and I trained together for the Priesthood back in the 90s at St Francis College, Brisbane and were ordained Priests together in 1996. In preparation for reaching my fourth Cathedral I have had a meeting with Ken which you can view as follows:

Ken mentions a number of things for which we can be praying for as I virtually visit over the course of this coming weekend:

  • the fixing of the leaky roof on the North side of the Cathedral
  • people who are feeling the experiences of isolation both in the congregation and the wider community
  • employment for people coming out of this crisis.

I have continued to ponder many things as I walk early each morning. The following quote from Mother Theresa inspires me all the time:
