Southern Cross Pilgrims Prepare for the Holy Land
Gauteng-based pilgrims taking part in the Southern Cross pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Rome in May came together for a preparation meeting at the Jesuit Institute in Johannesburg. It was a time to pick up useful hints on how to prepare for the journey and also to meet one another. A similar meeting was held in Cape Town.
The Johannesburg group was addressed by Fr Russell Pollitt SJ, who will lead the pilgrimage, Southern Cross editor Günther Simmermacher, and Gail Fowler of Fowler Tours. The pilgrims also received a copy of Günther Simmermacher’s book The Holy Land Trek (now in its second edition) to help them prepare for the many great sites of the land of Christ.
