Well it is now only two days until 40 Salvatorian Collaborators from Australia embark on the inaugural pilgrimage organised by their Leadership Team. By travelling “In the Footsteps of Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan” the Salvatorian Collaborators would like to mark the end of the Year of Father Jordan and to thank God for the gift of his remarkable life. Following the footsteps of Fr Jordan, they will also have an opportunity to deepen their love for this extraordinary person and priest.
