Pilgrimages to Portugal and Belgium are still available

Spaces on two Diocese of East Anglia pilgrimages to Portugal and Belgium are still available if booked soon.

At the end of April 2018, the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, Fr Tony Rogers and Fr Paul Maddison are leading a Diocesan pilgrimage to Flanders on behalf of Bishop Alan to remember all the fallen from across our diocese.

Travelling by coach, pilgrims will visit several of the places associated with soldiers from the diocese as well as laying a wreath at the Menin Gate in Ypres.

The cost of the five-day pilgrimage is £650 and more information is available from Pilgrimage People on 0800 6123423 or email: office@pilgrimagepeople.org quoting tour code ANGL07. Places are limited and need to be booked by around the end of October.

Bishop Alan will lead a pilgrimage to Fatima in Portugal in September 2018.

The provisional itinerary with the Pilgrimage People trip includes a guided tour of the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima and the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, also guided visit to sites associated with the shepherd children and the apparitions.

The final day is spent in Lisbon where flights to and from Stansted are included.

The price, including travel and accommodation in 3* and 4* hotels, is £850 per person sharing a twin/double room on a half-board basis. Single rooms are available at a supplement of £180.

A deposit of £250 and completed booking form is required by November 10.
