Walsingham Pilgrimage Next Weekend
The annual LMS pilgrimage to Walsingham will take place this coming Bank Holiday weekend. Those walking from Ely to Walsingham, a mere 55 miles over two and a half days, will assemble on the Thursday evening in Ely. Others, who prefer just to attend at Walsingham, can gather for Mass, which will be at the Catholic Shrine at 2pm on Sunday 30th August. It will be followed by a procession to the ruins of the old abbey and the site of the holy house. This year, Fr John Cahill will be the principal chaplain, and he will be assisted by Fr Michael Rowe, who is visiting from Australia. Fr Rowe was on the pilgrimage two years ago, when he livened up the event. Also there will by 5 Franciscan Friars doing the walk. It is too late now to book in for the walk from Ely, but please do join the walkers for Mass in Walsingham and in walking the Holy Mile.
