The Latin Mass Society organises a walking pilgrimage to Walsingham every year that takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Pilgrims walk from Ely to Walsingham which is a distance of 57 miles. Solemn Masses are offered each day, and the pilgrims recite or sing the rosary as they walk.
Bookings are now closed for those who want to walk the full distance, and I understand that more than 100 will be doing so. This will make it the largest pilgrimage in its 10 year history. However, anyone can take part in the final Mass which is at 2.30pm on Sunday 29th August at the Shrine in Houghton St Giles. The Mass is followed by a procession along the Holy Mile and the day concludes with devotions at the site of the Holy House.
It is a wonderful event and I would encourage anyone who can get there to attend.

Last Saturday, on the Vigil of the Assumption, there was a Solemn Mass in Westminster Cathedral on the occasion of the AGM of the Latin Mass Society. The LMS made special efforts to encourage people to attend, and were not disappointed. A member of the Cathedral staff commented that he had not seen so many turn out for an event at the cathedral since before Covid!

I attended the 10.30am Mass at St Walburge's Church in Preston this morning. I have never seen so many in the congregation there. Talking to regulars, confirmed that the size of the congregation is growing steadily, but especially in the last three weeks. This would seem to confirm what many people are saying. The motu proprio, Traditionis Custodes is serving to promote the popularity of the Latin Mass. You could say that Pope Francis has done us a good favour!
