Over many decades, the Marian Procession has gathered tens of thousands of Catholics from across Australia.

In 2018, St Clement’s Monastery, Galong will be celebrating 100 years since its founding and opening Mass. As with the first Mass, in 1918, we too will have the Apostolic Nuncio present. This year it will be Archbishop Yllana as Celebrant.

There is the opportunity for Mass, the Sacrament of Penance, to pray the rosary and be inspired by the speakers. It is a multicultural family day of festivities, where local Parishes, ethnic communities, clergy and religious take time to enjoy one another and journey with Mary to Jesus.

Youth – come and join in an hour long Youth Pilgrimage walk that travels from Galong Village to St Clement’s.

We would love for members of EVERY Parish, EVERY community and EVERY school to be represented at our Marian Procession.
