Walking Pilgrimage to Walsingham

The Latin Mass Society organises a Walsingham pilgrimage every year over the August Bank Holiday weekend.  This year the pilgrimage will start on the evening of Thursday 26th August when pilgrims will assemble in Ely.  Over the following three days, pilgrims will walk 57 miles to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham.  On the Sunday, there will be a Solemn Mass in the afternoon, and then the pilgrims will walk the Holy Mile.  The pilgrimage concludes with devotions at the site of the Holy House in the grounds of Walsingham Abbey.

Men are expected to bring tents, but covered accommodation is provided for ladies.  Excellent food is provided. More than 100 are expected to take part this year, and although most are young people, all ages are represented.

Full details and a booking facility can be found on the website of the Latin Mass Society.

For those who do not want to walk for three days, it is possible to join the pilgrimage on the Sunday only.  Anyone doing the one day pilgrimage need not book in advance, but should aim to arrive at the Catholic Shrine (Slipper Chapel) at about 1pm.  The devotions conclude at 5pm.
