Walking to Walsingham

The Latin Mass Society will be holding its third annual walking pilgrimage to Walsingham over the August Bank Holiday weekend.  Pilgrims will gather in Ely on the evening of Thursday 23rd August, and will walk the 55 miles, starting early on the Friday morning and arriving in Walsingham around mid-day on the Sunday.  There will be Mass each day, with the Saturday Mass celebrated at the private chapel of Oxborough Hall.

Overnight accommodation for men will probably be camping; women and families will have the benefit of being able to sleep in schools or halls.  Although the walking is arduous, it is within the capabilities of most people.  There will be support vehicles for anyone not able to walk the whole distance.

Last year, over thirty walked the distance.  This year, we are planning for sixty.  There is great commeraderie amongst the pilgrims, as well as plenty of hymn singing.  There are also opportunities for meditation, prayer and confession.  At least three priests are expected to take part.

Those who feel unable to walk the full distance can join the walk for the final day or go straight to Walsingham for the Mass which will be at 2pm at the shrine, after which we will process the Holy Mile to the grounds of the former abbey.

To book a place, go to the LMS website, where you can do it on line.
