Holy socks fund Portsmouth WYD pilgrims
A group of five creative young pilgrims in the UK have come up with a novel way of raising money to help finance their trip to World Youth Day - Holy Socks.
The tasteful toe warmers depict Bible characters, stories, poems and meditations, Independent Catholic News reported.
Jonah's Whale, Noah's Ark, Moses in the Bullrushes, goats, lambs, sheep and doves are some of the designs on the cotton socks.
The youths have already raised almost $A7000 in two months, and are well on their way financially to reaching their Sydney pilgrimage goal.
