Diary of #CDOW150th: Walking in footsteps of patron saint

By

TheDialog.org is following the #CDOW150th as 135 people travel for a pilgrimage to France and Rome to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Diocese of Wilmington.
DESTINATION (Day 3): It’s always good advice to bring good walking shoes. After breakfast, pilgrims gathered in their hotels (we are spread out among three hotels in Annecy) and departed for a two-hour walking tour of this beautiful city, “the Venice of the Savoy.”
HIGHLIGHTS: Local guides took CDOW visitors to the Church of Saint Francis de Sales, the Cathedral of St. Peter and various sites where SFdS and Saint Jane de Chantal lived, worked, and prayed. This evening, we gather at the Basilica of the Visitation, for Mass in the presence of the relics of these two saints.
