Another fantastic day, not just because we were in my home town but because today has shown how many hearts Donny B has touched over the years. This whole experience so far is really showing me personally that our, yes im using a collective ‘our’, spirituality is so wounderful and as a young person I’m so glad that I’ve been given this chance to work so closely with so many wonderful people. 

The crew have worked so hard, today especially, to spread the good news of Donny B. I really do encourage as many people as possible to come tomorrow to live everything I’m saying here. There have been so many people already that have said this experience has touched them in a way they didn’t think it would. VIVA DON BOSCO!!!

Day three: a quieter day in Carfin. Today we set about our duties seamlessly like we’d been doing this for years. Martin led us in the 10am Parish Mass which was a a lot calmer than yesterday’s masses in Glasgow. As the day went on I moved round on rotation to the prayer writing section where my day’s SOJ (source of joy) happened: a brother and sister came up to me saying they liked the picture on the boards, but they thought there was a lot of writing, so we decided to draw some prayers instead. 

That, to me, is what the pilgrimage is about: allowing young people to find their faith in an easy, relative way. Two amazing young people, who came to say goodbye to me at the end of the day. To close the day, Bishop Devine came and led mass, which was an experience in itself…for a older man he can’t half talk fast! We then said our goodbyes to Scotland, moving on to Savio in Bollington and tomorrow to the land of scouse, LIVERPOOL.

WHAT A DAY…starting with a fry-up then off to St Andrew’s. Being able to walk the Pilgrim Experience in a silent cathedral gave me a sense of belonging to the Salesian family. Guests start to arrive and at first the worries started; what am I going to say to people? What are people going to say to me? Do I know enough about spirituality?

But as soon as the first group of children came in, those worries disappeared! As the day continued, so too did my love for the family and Donny B. If today was anything to go by, we are in for a great pilgrimage…tour…big family PARTY!!!
