I took part in the Latin Mass Society's walking pilgrimage to Walsingham over the Bank Holiday weekend. I should admit that I did not walk the 55 miles from Ely to Walsingham, but was part of the transport team. One of my roles was to go ahead and prepare for each day's Mass and ensure that everything needed was present.
There were over 70 walkers, including several children. There was a Solemn Mass each day, with the final one at the shrine in Walsingham. For me, the climax of the event was the procession along the Holy Mile from the Slipper Chapel to the grounds of the former abbey in the village. Many, not me, walked this in bare feet, and the rosary was sung in a very joyful manner.
Look out for reports with photographs on other blogs. You will find something on LMS Chairman and on Chaplain Abroad. No doubt there will be other reports.
