The great glory of our Diocese is the Pilgrimage in honour of Our Lady St Mary of Glastonbury. From time immemorial, stretching back into the mists of our country’s history, Catholics have come to Glastonbury to be with Our Lady. We, in our day, continue this great tradition for the salvation of souls and the joy of heaven. This pilgrimage takes place on the second Sunday of July, so this year falls on July 8th. The programme for the day is as follows:
In the Shrine:
12.00pm Silent Adoration
In the Abbey grounds:
12.00-3.00pm Confessions and individual prayer
2.15pm Rosary Procession
3.30pm Mass in the Abbey
Please do come along to the Pilgrimage to sing the praises of Our Lady. When we do so, we join with the countless saints who have asked the prayers of Our Lady in this place - not to mention all of the folk, religious, lay and ordained who have come here to pray for the good of the Church and the world.
So let us come and ask our martyrs to strengthen our faith, and implore the angels to raise our voices to the courts of heaven, and the sweet Virgin to surround us with her love.
Come to the Pilgrimage!
