A warm welcome to the Diocese of East Anglia. I hope that you will find our website interesting and informative.
Our Diocesan mission is to respond to Christ’s call to proclaim the gospel. I pray that your contact with us, through this website and, if you are in East Anglia, through meeting us, will encourage you to enter more deeply into the encounter with God in Jesus Christ who is the source of our life and joy.
The annual Diocese of East Anglia Pilgrimage to Walsingham will take place on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1.
This year it will mark 120 years since the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham was restored in the Holy House at King’s Lynn.
Pilgrims will meet in the Friday Market in Walsingham village at midday for the Angelus.
This will be followed by the blessing of the new sculpture of the annunciation and the crowning of Our Lady of Walsingham before walking the Holy Mile to the Catholic National Shrine (now the Basilica of Our Lady of Walsingham) and the Slipper Chapel.
At 3pm there will be a Pontifical Mass at the Chapel of Reconciliation, led by Bishop Alan.
Parishes and groups are invited to bring their banners and flags and are requested to let organisers know that they are coming on 01328 820217 or email email@example.com
