High Mass in St Ethelreda's, Ely. We had four priests with us so High Mass was possible every day of the pilgrimage. (Votive Mass for Pilgrims.)
Fr Michael Rowe, who is based in Perth, Australia, blesses the pilgrims before the start of the walking, in the Methodist Hall in Ely, where we had breakfast (and dinner the evening before).
Mass in the chapel of Oxburgh Hall is always a highlight of the pilgrimage, thanks to the hospitality of the Bedingfeld family who still live in the historic Catholic house. Fr Henry Whisenant sings the Gospel (feast of St Batholemew).
Walking through the charming village of Great Massingham, where we stop on Saturday evening.
At Great Massingham we camp on the playing field behind the village hall. We had an enrollment of the Society of St Tarcisius, the LMS' guild for altar servers, of six new members.
Setting off again after an early lunch on Sunday. On Sunday we carry the processional statue with us.
The final approach to Houghton St Giles and the Catholic Shrine: the three chapters join up into one procession.
Prayers and a blessing outside the Slipper Chapel, before our Mass.
To be continued.
