Pilgrimage and Retreat 2024
Christ teaches his disciples in Chapter 6 of Mark’s gospel to take time out to get away from the business of life, and make space for reflection, refreshment and prayer. Through travelling, spending time together, and making time to reflect on the mysteries of our salvation, we deepen our relationship with Christ as his pilgrim people.4All Saints’ offers a number of opportunities for pilgrimage, retreat and silent recollection through the year. The following visits to Walsingham are now available to book through our parish office over the next 12 months.
