Pilgrimage to Fatima
In May 2010, we joined the thousands of pilgrims at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima, the high point of which was the Papal Mass celebrated on 13th May.
The Pilgrimage started quite unexpectedly with our flights being cancelled because of the ash cloud that was blowing across the whole of Northern Europe. However, we were taken from Liverpool Airport to a hotel on the outskirts of Saint Albans where we spent 48 hours waiting for the flight to be rearranged. We eventually flew out from Luton Airport and continued with our Pilgrimage as planned.
