Forty priests, more than 200 scoutmasters and rovers and nearly 1,000 boys will leave London on August 4 on the Scout Pilgrimage to Rome.
No further applications can be accepted.
The leader is Mgr. Joseph Halsall, Auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool.
Four doctors will travel with the pilgrimage and seminary students— from St. Edmund's, Ware, Oscott College, Upholland and Ushaw — with Ampleforth scouts will be responsible for the various services, including equipment and feeding. After five days in Rome the scouts will spend 10 days in Switzerland at the International Scout Chalet at Kandersteg.
