Group meeting on May 12th

The first HCPT Group 101 meeting to prepare for the 2013 pilgrimage takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday 12th May.

The meeting is for all helpers thinking about travelling next Easter and it will take place at Phil and Margaret's house. There will be a shared table for the meeting.

HCPT 2013 Trust Mass

The Trust Mass in 2013 will be organised by the Yorkshire Region and preparations are already under way. The theme for the pilgrimage will be 'We Are The Hands of the Lord' and Group 101 leader Phil Hall is writing some original music for the Trust Mass, which takes place on his birthday.

The following photos show the moment during the 2012 Trust Mass when the baton was handed over from the Scottish Region to the Yorkshire Region. Dave Jessop, of Group 58, received the baton on behalf of the Yorkshire Region.

HCPT are back home

Although Group 101 weren't there this year, by all accounts it sounds like the HCPT family had a fantastic pilgrimage in 2012, and most groups are now back at home.

Now we begin the preparations for the 2013 trip and Group 101 will definitely be there!

Thank you to everyone who has visited the website over the last week, we have had an amazing 1400 visits during the pilgrimage week.
