Pilgrimage to Walsingham

A pilgrimage to Walsingham from the Diocese of Leeds took place on Saturday 30th of September 2023 led by Rev Monsignor Andrew Summersgill Vicar General of the Diocese of Leeds.

We began with words of welcome from the Rector of the Shrine, Fr Robert Billing followed by the Angelus and the celebration of Holy Mass at 12:00 Noon in the Chapel of Reconciliation, After Mass there was time to meet and make friends and have lunch, and an opportunity to visit the Slipper Chapel where the statue of Our Lady of Walsingham is to be found, and where people may leave their petitions and prayer requests. The pilgrims then gathered in front of the flagpole, in readiness for the procession along the Pilgrim Way into Walsingham itself. During the procession, the Mysteries of the Rosary were prayed. This year some of our Catholic High Schools were represented on the pilgrimage. and helped to carry the statue of Our Lady.
