The Dominican Sisters of Saint Cecilia in Australia are hosting the Sea to Sea Marian Pilgrimage on Saturday 11 May 2019 from 11am to 4pm at St Mary's, 33 Howard St, West Melbourne. All are welcome to honour Our Lady with a day of prayer, pilgrimage, witness and fellowship. Mass begins at 11am at St Mary Star of the Sea in West Melbourne, followed by a pilgrimage (on foot or by tram) to historic, beautiful shrines dedicated to Our Lady.

At noon, you'll be stopping for lunch at Brunswick street on foot or by tram, then head out to St Patrick's Cathedral. Other stops include St Mary Mackillop's birthplace/ACU Chapel visit, St Francis Church around 2.30pm, with a stopover at Victoria Market for coffee at 3pm for 15 mins and resuming the pilgrimage from 3.45-4pm, heading back to St Mary Star of the Sea.

It's a great event of adoration and reflection on Mothers Day weekend, honouring the mother of Jesus Christ, as we stop and honour our own on this weekend. Our Lady, Star of the Sea is an ancient title for the Virgin Mary. It's been in use since the early medieval period, and came to be seen as allegorical of Mary's role as 'guiding star' on the way to Christ. The Virgin Mary is believed to intercede as a guide and protector; of seafarers in particular.
