After a break of a year due to COVID, the Latin Mass Society will be resuming its annual walking pilgrimage to Walsingham over the August bank holiday weekend. Solemn Mass is offered each day, and the Rosary is recited (or sung) as the pilgrims walk the route. The final Mass will take place at the Walsingham Shrine at on Sunday 29th.
Pilgrims planning to walk the 57 miles from Ely to Walsingham should assemble in Ely on the evening of Thursday 26th August. Ladies are provided with overnight accommodation in halls at points along the route, whilst men are expected to camp.
Anyone wishing to take part in the walking pilgrimage must register before the event. This can be done on the main website of the Latin Mass Society.
For those who do not feel able to make the long walk, an alternative is to make a day pilgrimage by gathering at the Walsingham Shrine for Mass at 2pm on the Sunday. This will be followed by a procession along the Holy Mile and conclude around 5pm with Devotions at the site of the Holy House. No registration is required for day pilgrims.
