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.

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.

- 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:
