Our little website, come alive with 75!

Candlelight

on April 2, 2016

So Friday, always and emotional day in Lourdes. The day we realise the time we have spent together as a group is coming to an end, for this week anyway. We have had a fabulous week and the young people we have brought with us have made a long lasting impression. We’ve had so many laughs together and each and everyone have been a privilege to spend time with.

We began Friday with by decorating the group candle and writing our petitions. The guys then went off shopping for a little while whilst deputy and leader got the arduous task of packing the boxes and figuring what need for next year’s trip. Not even home yet and we’re planning for the future.

After lunch Father came to bless the candle ready for us to take it to the grotto later in the evening. We continued the afternoon with a regional photo for the North West followed by mass.

This is where Hannah got to exhibit her exiled vocal talents and Jamie his acting prowess. They were both fabulous and super talented.

We then made our last visit to cafe for a great sing song with some other groups. Absolutely great fun. Thoroughly enjoyed by us all.

As dusk fell we set out for the grotto with our group candle. As always it was very emotional. We spend a short time there lighting the candle, reflecting on our week and thoughts turn to people at home. There were a few tears, which very quickly turned to laughter when one of our young people said ‘do you know the best thing about life…..Lego’.

Well what more can you say?? It has been one fabulous year with a marvellous group of people. I hope for us all to meet up at the reunion which we’ll confirm when we’re back.

So all that’s left to do is finish packing and get ready to leave!!

Come Alive with 75!!
