Alton Webteam: January 2018
In May I am leading a pilgrimage to The Holy Land with McCabe Travel — which I have done before with members of our parish. We would like to bolster the number who are coming and I wonder if you would please advertise it amongst your folks over the next couple of weeks or so. If anyone is interested I can talk with them further or they can contact Jenny Brake as directed on the attached brochure. The brochure gives dates, itinerary etc — I have printed copies if anyone wants any.
The brochure is attached as a PDF
Thanks in advance and best wishes
