Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham

Fr Michael and Fr Nick Barry from St Luke's Church have now led 4 joint parish pilgrimages to Walsingham, in Norfolk, in 2017, 2018, 2019 AND 2021. Sadly the planned Pilgrimage for 2020 had to be cancelled.

MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE 2022 PILGRIMAGE WILL BE PUBLISHED NEARER THE TIME, IN THE MEANTIME, PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINKS BELOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING THIS YEAR:

The cost of the flight, transport, accommodation and food would be roughly between £270 and £320, depending on actual flight costs, once flights start up again.  If you are interested in coming, please sign the ‘Expression of Interest Form’ (ABOVE): this would not commit you, at this stage, but would give us some idea of numbers.  Feel free to have a chat with Father Nick or I about the idea or talk to one of those lay people who have been before.

 

Walsingham, a pretty country village in the Norfolk, has been a place of pilgrimage since the eleventh century, and houses the National Anglican Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham, set in beautiful gardens in the heart of the village.  Many hundreds of thousands of pilgrims come every year from the British Isles and from across the world and have done so throughout the centuries.  The pilgrimage is a real opportunity to share in fellowship, reflection, the sacraments and prayer, but also to ‘enjoy’!  The accommodation is excellent (as is the food!) and is within the grounds of the Shrine.  Never been before?  Why not give it go?

 

Do have a look at the exhibition of material about Walsingham at the back of St Peter’s Church, which I hope will inform you further.  As a Priest Associate of the Shrine, I am committed to pray at Mass, for the work of the Shrine and for those who visit: this is done at St Peter’s on the second Wednesday of each month during the 1000 Mass. You are always welcome!
