Our World Youth Day pilgrims had the chance to visit the Eiffel Tower whilst in Paris

Our World Youth Day pilgrims have arrived in Paris!

They have spent time visiting some of the beautiful churches in Paris including La Madeleine Church, the church dedicated to St Mary Magdalene, the Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre which overlooks the entire city and the Shrine of St Vincent de Paul, where the relics of this great saint are kept.

Miss Reynolds said it was special to visit La Madeleine Church on the feast day of St Mary Magdalene and she particularly liked one of the beautiful statues in this church depicting the wedding of Mother Mary to St Joseph.

“On Day 3 we began our day with Mass commemorating the feast of St Sharbel Makhlouf at the Shrine of St Vincent de Paul. We then visited the shrine of the Miraculous Medal, where Mary appeared to St Catherine Laboure. The famous Miraculous Medal was revealed to St Catherine in this place”.

“We are praying for the intentions of our Catherine McAuley community everyday of our pilgrimage”, said Miss Reynolds.
