We're On Our Way

The first day of our pilgrim relay was a wonderful experience. The service of sending in Nidaros Cathedral was an extraordinary event - filled with music by The Trondheim Soloists and The Schola Sanctae Sunnivae, musicians who will accompany our walk in Rome and also in Jerusalem. We felt truly blessed and moved by the ceremony as well as the music.

The Norwegian painter Håkon Gullvåg – who has won recognition for his ecclesiastical commissions – donated a portable altarpiece to the pilgrimage (see photos). Pilgrim Pastor Einar Vegge will carry the middle section of the altarpiece on the first part of the pilgrimage.
