I have just returned from the Latin Mass Society's Pilgrimage to Walsingham. Around 80 pilgrims walked the 57 miles from Ely to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. This took two and a half days. They arrived in time to join about 100 day pilgrims for a Solemn Mass in the Chapel of Reconciliation on Sunday afternoon. This was followed by a procession along the Holy Mile to the Abbey grounds, where there were further devotions.
At the end of the pilgrimage, Fr Michael Rowe, who was chaplain to the pilgrimage, and had travelled from Australia for the event, said that, "of the 50 walking pilgrimage that he had attended in different parts of the world, this one was the best".
Remember to book into next year's Walsingham Pilgrimage, which will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend as usual.
