There will be a pilgrimage in honour of St Margaret Clitherow in York on Saturday 26th March. It is being organised by the Latin Mass Society and is expected to attract pilgrims from all over the north of England. St Margaret Clitherow is a patron of the Latin Mass Society.
A Missa Cantata will be celebrated by Fr Stephen Maughan at the High Altar of York Minster, and this will be followed by a procession to the Church of the English Martyrs in Dalton Terrace where there will be Benediction and veneration of the relic. The procession will pass through The Shambles, where Margaret Clitherow lived, and over Ouse Bridge, the site of her execution. The timings are as follows:-
1.30pm Missa Cantata York Minster
4.00pm Benediction English Martyrs' Church
Use of York Minster has been made possible by kind permission of the Dean and Chapter.
A coach is being laid on for people travelling from Birmingham (contact Matthew Doyle: 0121 533 9049) and also one from Allerton Bywater. Those travelling by car are advised that parking restrictions in York are severe, and may find it more convenient to use the park and ride service from Askham Bar, on the Tadcaster Road, near to the A64. Thirty minutes should be allowed to get from there to the Minster.
