Initiated by Archbishop Doyle and Inspired by the Journey of the World Youth Day Cross and Icon around Tasmania from 11th – 19th May, 2008. The Parishes of the Archdiocese of Hobart have together created a magnificent and truly special Pilgrimage route, marked by life sized crosses, around our beautiful state for all to enjoy.
Currently fourteen crosses have been carefully planned and each uniquely designed by Parishes, reflecting local industries, interests and the needs and focus of their communities. Each Cross was funded and constructed by that Parish to form part of the wider Tasmanian Pilgrimage, each with their own story to tell. Click the icons on the map below to view the crosses.
