Weekend Pilgrimage to Walsingham 2024

Friday 12 - Sunday 14 April 2024

What is Walsingham?

The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham was founded by the Lady Richeldis de Favarches in 1061, following a vision she had whilst praying. In this vision she was taken by Mary to be shown the house in Nazareth where Gabriel had announced the news of the birth of Jesus. Mary asked Richeldis to build an exact replica of that house in Walsingham. This is how Walsingham became known as England's Nazareth.

What is Pilgrimage? 

Pilgrimage is an essential part of life for Christians, who see life itself in terms of a journey, coming from God and returning to God. This is true of other world religions where pilgrimage is also important. A pilgrimage is a symbol in action. It represents the journey of the Christian life from earth to heaven. The Church is sometimes described as a pilgrim people. The particular emphasis of pilgrimage to Walsingham is concerned with the Incarnation of Jesus - this is the belief central to the Christian faith that at a definite date in history, in a certain place, God himself was born of a woman into a human family.
