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.

Diary of #CDOW150th: Travel hiccups at outset of pilgrimage

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.

TODAY’S DESTINATION (Day Two): Philly to London to Geneva to Annecy.

HIGHLIGHTS: If patience is a virtue, give special kudos to one of two planes carrying pilgrims that was delayed on the tarmac in London for nearly two hours. Despite airline delays and faux pas, pilgrims spirits remain (mostly) high on Day 2. Two flights left Philadelphia for Heathrow Airport on Monday evening. Flight number one was delayed on the London tarmac for close to two hours, resulting in missing connections to Geneva. About 80 percent of the Diocese of Wilmington sesquicentennial passengers on flight number two arrived in London to learn that their tickets to Geneva had been inexplicably cancelled. Many of the pilgrims will be hours late in arriving in Annecy. Read more »

Four leaders of the church named Francis, that is, will highlight the journey — Bishop W. Francis Malooly of Wilmington, Pope Francis, St. Francis de Sales and St. Francis of Assisi.

Bishop Malooly will lead the diocesan pilgrimage from April 16-26 next year starting in Annecy, France, where Francis de Sales, the patron saint of the diocese, ministered. Read more »
