Pilgrimage and Retreat 2023 | All Saints Margaret Street

Pilgrimage and Retreat 2023

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.

All 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.


Walsingham Silent Retreat

Friday 2nd December-Sunday 4th December 2022

Cost: £182 (including full board plus mini-coach from Kings Lynn – retreatants need to book their own train ticket to Kings Lynn).

Retreat leader: Rt Revd Roger Jupp, Vicar of St Lawrence, Long Eaton.

This retreat will be silent from after supper on Friday night to the Parish Mass on Sunday morning.


National Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham

Monday 29th May 2023

This is a day pilgrimage to Walsingham which takes place on the last Bank Holiday in May each year. We travel together in a coach from Margaret Street, setting off first thing, and return late in the evening of the same day. The pilgrimage includes a large outdoor Mass in the Abbey grounds of Walsingham, with sermon and procession in the afternoon. The cost is usually around £20. Details will be announced closer to the time.


Annual parish weekend pilgrimage to Walsingham

Friday 21st July to Monday 24th July 2023

Cost: £270 Friday to Monday; or £190 Friday to Sunday evening (including full board plus mini-coach from Kings Lynn – pilgrims need to book their own train ticket to Kings Lynn).

A weekend pilgrimage away involving: Pilgrimage Mass at the Shrine Church; evening processions; sacraments of healing; sprinkling at the holy well and finishing with procession of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. We are aware that including Monday in the time we are away might not be convenient for those who work. We have decided therefore, to offer two deals: one for those who wish to come home on Sunday night and one for those who want to come back on Monday.
