LMS Walking Pilgrimage from Ely to Walsingham

We've now issued a press release on this. This is the last chance to book! The press release quotes me:

Dr Joseph Shaw, LMS Chairman, said: “I am very excited by this pilgrimage – it’s the sort of practical and challenging devotion which young people in particular find of great benefit. This is just one of the evangelical activities by which the LMS is responding to Pope Benedict’s call for a fresh presentation of the Faith in Europe”.


The Latin Mass Society is proud to announce its first ever Walking Pilgrimage to Walsingham.


Pilgrims will meet at Ely campsite on the evening of Thursday 19th August, and the pilgrimage will start with a blessing in Ely Cathedral at 7am on Friday 20th. We will arrive in Walsingham in time for Sung Mass at the Catholic Shrine at 2.30pm on Sunday 22nd.

Accommodation is in tents (bring your own); camp sites have been booked. The pilgrims will be supported by vehicles carrying the heavy luggage, providing water, and looking after those unable to continue walking.

We will have Traditional Missa Cantata each day: in Downham Market on Friday, and in the private chapel of Oxburgh Hall on Saturday.

We will be accompanied by Fr Alexander Redman.

The cost is £60 per pilgrim, but those in straightened circumstances are encouraged to pay only what they can afford.

For Our Lady of Walsingham and the conversion of England!

Paul Smeaton writes:
As this is the first time we have attempted anything like this in England, as well as a spiritual journey, this will no doubt be something of a learning experience. For that reason we are limiting this year's pilgrimage to thirty pilgrims and adults only. We hope that this will be the start of great things.

That being said we expect that this year will be a rich and beautiful expression of the treasure's of our Church. We are blessed to have a priest walking the entire pilgrimage with us and their will be sung Mass in the traditional form each day.
