York Pilgrimage on Saturday 29th March
Don't forget one of the Latin Mass Society's major events is taking place this Saturday, the annual Pilgrimage to York in honour of St Margaret Clitherow, the Pearl of York. She was martyred, on the feast of the Annunciation, by being crushed to death, while pregnant, after refusing to testify at her trial for the crime of harbouring priests.
Mass is on Saturday, 29th March 2014, at 1:30pm, in St Wilfrid's. This is easy to find as it is opposite York Minster. It is the church where a new Oratory of St Philip Neri is being established by Fr Richard Duffield, who has been at the Oxford Oratory for many years.
After Mass there will be a procession to the site of the martyrdom, and back to to St Wilfrid's for Benediction. The procession won't be as long as in previous years, when it went on to the English Martyrs church.
