Open invitation extended to SVP Walsingham pilgrimage

Bishop Emeritus Alan Hopes will be celebrating Mass at the annual SVP Pilgrimage for the Sick at the National Catholic Shrine and Basilica of Our Lady in Walsingham on Sunday July 7.

Pilgrims are welcome to bring a picnic to the shrine and Mass will begin at 1.30pm, followed by anointing of the sick at 3pm and Benediction at 4pm.

Joan Wall, President of the East Anglia Central Council of the SVP, is opening an invitation not just to SVP members but also to all priests who can make it and all parishioners especially those who are supporting someone who is sick and can bring them for this once-in-a-year opportunity to receive prayer at the National Shrine at Walsingham.

To help those who have limited mobility or are in wheelchairs, it will be possible to drop people close to the shrine before going on to park.  For more information, please contact SVP Membership Support Officer Eldred Willey on
