Summer Opportunities

The longer days beckon! As we get back to some of our favourite activities, we may also wish to keep us some of the habits we have formed during the past number of months….

Walking ancient pilgrimage paths is part of our faith tradition. As the summer begins, you might like to visit places a little further from home, as well the known pilgrim paths here in the diocese.
