The organisers of the Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage to Rome, which is taking place October 23-26, 2014, have asked me to draw attention to details, below, for the benefit of pilgrims from Australia. It was announced earlier on this blog here.
I know organised groups are coming from elsewhere as well, and a group from England is being organised by the Latin Mass Society. Anyone interested in this should email:
for more details.
IIIrd INTERNATIONAL SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM PILGRIMAGE:
IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR AUSTRALIAN AND OVERSEAS PILGRIMS
As Cardinal Pell will celebrate Mass in Rome for the tenth anniversary of the Juventutem federation, we’ve received some requests from Australia about how to participate.
As there is no specific tour being organized from Oceania, we suggest pilgrims from down-under take advantage of a special tour organized on this occasion by Syversen Touring, a US-based Catholic travel agency.
Indeed, Syversen offers a 7 days land tour for $2350 USD. Organizing your flight to Rome would be at your charge, but once in Rome, you would join the US pilgrims on Tuesday, October 21 and follow the tour till Monday, October 27. You shall find a full description of the tour on the brochure you can download here.
