Congratulations to Isla and Annabel, pictured above, who recently undertook a sponsored swim. Here they tell us about what motivated them to do it and what they will be doing next; they also have a message for the parishioners who sponsored them. Great work girls - well done!
Redshirts’ Pilgrimage to Lourdes
We had heard a lot about Lourdes, and when the opportunity to go as a Redshirt on the Arundel and Brighton Pilgrimage to Lourdes was talked about at our school, St Peter’s, we were keen to join in.
To raise money towards the cost of the pilgrimage we decided to do a sponsored swim. On Saturday 28th April we swam 6k between us at Surrey Sports Park. The swim went very well but was tiring!
The week before we had spoken at 9:30 Mass at St Pius, to explain what we were doing, and we were overwhelmed by the support we received.
Big Thank You
We would like to thank parishioners for their very generous support for our sponsored swim.
Our pilgrimage starts on Wednesday 25th July and lasts for a week. We have had one preparation day so far and are both really looking forward to going. We are very grateful for the support from our Parish.
Thank you very much!
Isla and Annabel
