Ely to Walsingham: Day 0

The Latin Mass Society Walking Pilgrimage starts tomorrow, with a blessing in the Catholic Parish Church of St Ethelreda.

We have gathered in Ely, and most of the pilgrims are sleeping on the floor of the Catholic prebytery. The church has an impressive relic of St Ethelreda, the Anglo-Saxon princess who evaded two diplomatic marriages to found a convent.

Tomorrow we walk from Ely yo Downham Market, where we will have a Traditional Sung Mass. It is tipping with rain here - wish us luck for tomorrow, and see here for updates!
