Orkney Islands

isle01Our pilgrimage continues. we have left behind the spiritual tourists and are now on the main island in Orkney. Orkney Islands are just north of the tip of Scotland, right before the Sheltands. I am attempting to get out to a minor island called Papa Strounsay – the Golgotha Monastary Island. It has been a Celtic monastic island for about 1500 years and is now run by a Catholic Order. Unfortunately, they do not have ferry service and there is no phone line in to the island right now, so getting in contact with them is difficult. I caught Brother Gerard on a different island and he is trying to get one of the brothers to come across with his boat to a larger island so we can meet and talk.
Anyway, thats whats up with our family pilgrimage. Thanks for your prayers.
