Today was a more eventful sort of day. To begin with, everything was the same as every other day so far: get up ridiculously early, travel, buy lunch, steward the Pilgrim Experience. 

The difference today was that we had to maintain the pilgrim journey while contending with Mass every hour - including a Latin Mass. Apart from a few disgruntled Mass attendees, all went smoothly with the team getting praised again and the journey being inspirational. 

We has mass at 2pm and as we were sitting in the middle of the cathedral, with Don Bosco, when it came to singing Friend of the Young after communion, most of us had to sprint to the front to reach the microphone and Edwin and try to sing - worked well I thought.

Don Bosco was then led out of the cathedral by the Bishop and the road crew became bodyguards! It was a little chaos trying to keep people away from the casket but we did it and as soon as we were outside, we threw away the restraints and broke into song, clapping and wooping in the piazza. 

After everything had been packed up, we raced back to Basildon, had a quick change and then went out with all the families and some of the parisioners to a Toby Carvery, courtesy of a Salesian Past-Pupil living in the Parish. The generosity and love shown to us by our host community has been amazing, don’t know why we were worried! 

Southwark tomorrow, let’s get the cards and spinning-plates out again!
