Pilgrimage Walk to Carfin Grotto
On 1st October, parishioners from St Gerard's & Sacred Heart Parishes in Bellshill recently had a Pilgrimage Walk from St Gerard's Church to Carfin Grotto to mark the Year of Mercy. After Holy Mass in St Gerard's celebrated by Fr McGoldrick, over 40 parishioners of all ages took part in the 4 mile walk to Carfin. At the Grotto they were joined by another 30 parishioners to pass through the Holy Door, Venerate the Relic of St Therese of Lisieux and take part in a Rosary Procession around the grounds of the Grotto. The Rosary Procession was led by Deacon Jim Aitken and children from the parishes.
