Logo for Holy Year of MercyFamilies from the parish First Communion group made their way this afternoon to Maryvale – one of the Archdiocesan pilgrimage centres for the Year of Mercy.

We were warmly welcomed by the warden, and by Maryvale’s Director, Fr Eddie Clare.

We visited Maryvale’s chapel, where Fr Eddie told us of the history of the place, and then in small groups we had the privilege of going to pray in the Sacred Heart Chapel.

Then we said our prayers together, remembering God’s love and mercy before passing through the Holy Door to get ready for our first confessions in just a few weeks time.
