St Margaret Clitherow and the Martyrs of York

This year's pilgrimage in honour of St Margaret Clitherow and the Martyrs of York will take place on Saturday 29th April.  It will commence with a Solemn Mass at 1.30pm in the Church of St Wilfrid in York.  This will be followed by a procession through the streets of York carrying a statue of Margaret Clitherow.  It will pass through The Shambles, the place where she lived, and visit Ouse Bridge, the place of her execution, returning to St Wilfrid's Church for Benediction at around 4pm.

The well respected Choral Scholars of the York Oratory (in formation) will be singing at both the Mass and at Benediction.

This pilgrimage has become one of the major events in the world of traditional Catholicism in England and Wales, and attracts large numbers of pilgrims.  It also makes a considerable impact in the City of York.  Please make a note of the date and support the event.


Due to the unavailability of Mgr Heslin, the Sunday Masses at Redcar are suspended until further notice,  Please pray for the speedy recovery of Mgr Heslin who has undergone an operation fo the removal of a cancer.
