The Diocese of East Anglia Pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady of Walsingham on Bank Holiday Monday May 6, marks the first weekend of Pilgrimages from the Diocese of England and Wales. The Pilgrimage is led by the Parish of King’s Lynn, who made the first procession to Walsingham in modern times.
Bishop Alan warmly invites the clergy, religious and all God’s people to join in this Pilgrimage in which we will consecrate our Diocese once more to her loving care.
Parish Coaches are welcome as are families and individuals making their own way! The young people who will have been celebrating the Ignite Weekend will also be joining us in Walsingham. All Diocesan altar servers are also invited to vest for the Mass and procession.
