Pilgrimages, Quiet Days & Retreats

pilgrimage poster

LSM regularly undertakes pilgrimages, either as day trips within England or more extended visits further afield. In the summer we usually make a parish pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, and often to Glastonbury. We have also visited Westminster Abbey and the cathedrals at Lincoln and St Albans.

More distant destinations have included the Celtic shrines of North Wales, Rome, Oberammergau for the Passion Play and following the Camino or Way of Saint James, through France and northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.  LSM pilgrimages visited the Holy Land in 2007 and 2018.

Parish retreats have been held at the Benedictine Abbey of Worth in Sussex, and jointly with our Belgian linked parish at the Trappist monastery of the Mont des Cats in northern France.

A parish pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham is provisionally planned for the summer of 2021. Further details wll be given here in due course.
