You are invited to the second Latin Mass Society walking pilgrimage for the conversion of England. We will be walking from Ely to Walsingham from 26th to 28th August 2011. This is a bank-holiday weekend.
Pilgrims will meet in the evening of Thursday 25 August at St Ethelreda's Catholic Church, 19 Egremont Street, Ely, CB6 1AE. The pilgrimage will begin with the Traditional Mass in St Ethelreda's Catholic Church on Friday morning.
There will be a sung Traditional Latin Mass each day and Confession will be available throughout the pilgrimage.
Mass on the second day will be in the private chapel at Oxburgh Hall. This is a c15th moated manor house which is still the home of the Bedingfield family who built it nearly six hundred years ago. Oxburgh Hall was a recusant house in penal times and has a priest hole. The pilgrimage will conclude with Mass at Walsingham on Sunday afternoon (in the Chapel of Reconciliation, the 'barn-like' building next to the Slipper Chapel!). Pilgrims will have the chance to visit the Slipper Chapel as well.
This pilgrimage is open to all ages and to families.
We want to encourage as many families to attend this pilgrimage as possible. For that reason we have secured indoor accommodation for each night. The indoor accommodation is for use by women and children. Women and children are also free to camp if they wish. Camping is compulsory for men, although this will be indoors on the Friday night.
If, for any reason, you are unable to take part in the pilgrimage itself, you are more than welcome to attend any or all of the Masses along the way. The details are as follows:
Friday, 26 August: St Etheldreda’s Catholic Church, 19 Egremont Street, Ely, CB6 1AE 6.15am
Saturday, 27 August: Oxburgh Hall, Oxborough, near Swaffham, Norfolk PE33 9PS 9am
Sunday, 28 August: Chapel of Reconciliation, Catholic National Shrine, Walsingham, 2pm
For those wishing just to attend the final Mass in Walsingham, there is a coach leaving London on Sunday, 28 August for the final Mass at Walsingham. If you wish to book a place, please phone the LMS office (020 7404 7284).
