Our Lady of Walsingham is a big hit in Panama

On Day Five of World Youth Day in Panama the East Anglia group had their final catechesis session and found Our Lady of Walsingham was a big hit. Jess McCall reports.

Today was our final catechesis session! It was a reconciliation service which meant that there were priests hearing confessions during the entire session. We also had the opportunity in our groups to talk about where we thought our relationship with God was now and where we would like our relationship with God to be! It was really great to think about our relationship with God and where he is in our lives.

The statue of Our Lady of Walsingham was a massive hit again with a group from Chile wanting me to talk to them about the statue and the Shrine and why she is so important. We also bumped into the group that came from Middlesbrough.

One of the boys in their group is actually from Bury St Edmunds and he had brought with him the Bury St Edmunds flag! We got a great photo of both groups with the UK and Bury St Edmunds flags as well as the statue of Our Lady of Walsingham (see above).
