Members and friends of the Western Cape Commandery of the Grand Bailiwick of South Africa recently completed its inaugural one day, 10 km, eleven church Pilgrimage of Prayer through historic parts of Cape Town.

Starting with prayers led by our chaplain, Canon Rowen Smith, at the Order’s home parish of St Michael and All Angels in Observatory, walkers took off on foot to visit and pray at historic churches and three cathedrals representing a cross-section of Christian expression in the city. This included memorable moments in the glorious explosion of colour and vibrancy of the Greek Orthodox Cathedral; the quiet, austere simplicity of the Moravian Chapel in District Six and the sanctity and rose windows of St Mary’s (Cathedral of Our Lady of the Flight into Egypt) and lastly, St George’s Cathedrals.
