Two Coventry young Catholics set out this week to hitchhike to Rome and back, in order to make the Holy Year pilgrimage. They estimate that the distance for the round trip will he about 2.000 miles and that they should return to Coventry towards the end of July.

The young men concerned are parishioners of St. Elizabeth's, Cov

As Peter Gill was not to he demobilised from the Forces until last week-end. the young men met in London and then hitch-hiked to Dover on the first stage of their long journey.
