Local Celebrations

Catholics line the streets

Whether you attended a Papal event or watched it online or on television, each of us will have our own treasured memories of those historic four days.

Consider getting together in your homes and parishes on the evening of 17 September - the anniversary of when 80, 000 people gathered at the Prayer Vigil in Hyde Park - to share a meal together, offer prayers of thanksgiving, perhaps watch the official Papal Visit DVD if you have one or watch the events online. You can share your photographs and stories from that weekend.

These gatherings also present an opportunity for you to invite those who are not churchgoers to join you.
