PILGRIMAGE TO WALSINGHAM
14th – 16th May 2019

 Walsingham It’s not all about Mary, but Mary Points to her son

 Walsingham is one of the most extraordinary villages in the British Isles. From the 12th century, when organised pilgrimage began to the “Holy House”, until 1538 the village of Little Walsingham saw huge amounts of building activity including an Augustinian Priory and a Franciscan Friary and dozens of cottages; all this in response to the thousands of pilgrims (including every monarch from Henry III (c.1226) to Henry VIII (1511)) who flocked to the Shrine. In 1252 a charter had been granted to hold a weekly market and an annual fair.

 The destruction of the religious houses and the burning of the image of Our Lady of Walsingham on Henry VIII’s orders should have led to the collapse of the village. But Walsingham, still the largest town in north Norfolk, continued to prosper – principally through the cultivation of crocuses for the spice, saffron. Many of the old Priory buildings were adapted and put to new use and incorporated in the 18th century building “The Abbey”, a large house set in a small park. The monks’ adjoining lands became the ‘Estate’.

 Today’s visitor to Walsingham walks round a flourishing village – though there is still a healthy degree of tumbledown. Restoration and conservation go’s on apace. For a village of its size, Walsingham supports an amazing number of shops – mainly tourist/pilgrim shops, but also a mini-supermarket, a large antique shop in the old mill, assorted charity, craft and teashops plus a second-hand book shop serving teas and coffee.

 A number of people have asked if we might have our own pilgrimage to Walsingham which I am happy to arrange on the above dates arriving on the 14th from 14.30 with first visit to the Holy House at 16.00 and following the midweek pilgrimage programme and concluding after Mass and Last visit on Thursday morning.

I know that some have concerns (myself included) about the Shrines stand on Certain issues, however this should not preclude our devotion to Mary and our pilgrimage to England’s Nazareth.

A full board (Dinner. Bed breakfast, lunch, Dinner. Bed Breakfast) will cost about £138.00

So that I might have an idea of how many and who are likely to join us please send your name and address together with a cheque for £20 made payable to WCTA Ltd to me at:
