SPES has arrived at their first destination on their pilgrimage to World Youth Day later this month in Sydney, Australia!

Jenny, Anthony, Edna, Jeanine and Father Alexander have taken off with a group of nearly 50 people from different parts of England ... and we have all arrived, safe and sound.

We arrived in Singapore on Sunday evening, made ourselves comfortable in our gymnasium floor, and bedded down for an early morning start of 7AM! Not to worry - our internal clocks were pretty mixed up, so made for a relatively smooth wake up ... sort of!

We visited the Family Life Society, which is located at the Centre for Education for the Singapore Diocese. We heard a talk on Theology of the Body from our guide, Andrew, and we also heard a bit more about the work of the FLS. Below is a picture of Jeanine, Jenny, Edna, Anthony, Father Alexander and the infamous Thomas Whisenant who must give his older brother, Henry (a past student of SPES!), a good run for his money when it comes to trying to keep him in line!

Today we are leaving Singapore, after visiting three of the Missionaries of Charity's Houses. We land in Melbourne, then head straight to Alice Springs for three days in the outback before joining 'Days in the Diocese' in Melbourne! We'll keep you posted ... and please keep us in your prayers too.
