The annual walking pilgrimage to Walsingham organised by the Latin Mass Society will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Pilgrims will gather in Ely on the evening of Thursday 25th August and will arrive in Walsingham around midday on the Sunday.
The distance is about 55 miles, so it is not for the feint-hearted. However, in the past, it has been completed by small children and people in their 70s and even 80s. Accommodation is in halls for women and camping for men.
To read all about it, and to book, go to the Latin Mass Society website and look under news and events.
Footnote: The Latin Mass Society also welcomes day visitors to Walsingham on the Sunday. There will be a Solemn Mass at 2pm at the Catholic Shrine, followed by a procession along the Holy Mile and final prayers in the Abbey grounds. If you are not able to walk the 55 miles, why not join the pilgrimage in Walsingham.
