Westminster Abbey Pilgrimage
Join us on Saturday 19th October for the national pilgrimage to the shrine of St Edward the Confessor in Westminster Abbey. This year the Archbishop of Canterbury is the preacher at the 11.30 sung Eucharist. We shall be walking as proper pilgrims! We shall gather outside the Vicarage at St Mary Mags and leave at 9.30 sharp. Bring a picnic to eat in the Cloisters after the Eucharist. Please speak to Fr Henry if you are coming.
