There will be a pilgrimage in honour of the English Martyrs at Preston on Saturday 5th May. Pilgrims are invited to gather at 11.45am in St Walburge's Church, where there will be devotions, before the procession sets off at noon.
As you can see from the picture, St Walburge's has a very tall spire. In fact it is the third highest spire in England, after Salisbury Cathedral an Norwich Cathedral. It can be seen for miles around, so should not be too difficult to find. The Postcode is PR2 2QE for those navigating with the aid of satnav.
It is a little under a mile to the church of the English Martyrs, where Mass will be celebrated at around 12.30 pm.
As you can see from this photograph, this is also a large church, although it's spire never got built. Both churches are magnificent inside, although the following pictures do not do them justice.
The Church of the English Martyrs occupies a very historic site, as it was built at the place of execution of some of the leaders of the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion - a very good reason to attend the pilgrimage.
Another good reason to attend the pilgrimage is that it is being led by the Institute of Christ the King, Supreme Priest - something that will surely guarantee the success of the event.
