 2019 Walsingham  Pilgrimage to The  Holy Land

  14th - 21st November 2019

Following the success of previous Walsingham Holy Land Pilgrimages I have been asked by pilgrims to make a return visit.

As before we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus in Galilee and in Jerusalem. In Galilee we will visit Nazareth, Walsingham's spiritual origins and the town in which Jesus grew up. We will also visit Capernaum, the fishing village which became the centre of His ministry, as well as other places associated with the events of the gospel. In Jerusalem, we will retrace Jesus' steps from Bethany to Gethsemane and along the Way of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre  We will visit Bethlehem as well as the Dead Sea and Qumran, the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.

I hope many will want to join me on this unique spiritual journey following in the steps of our Lord, and support our Christian  brothers and sisters in this troubled region. We will celebrate the Sacraments, pray together, and open up the Scriptures in the  place where it happened.

Fr Grant Naylor and Fr John Eldridge will be assisting me on this pilgrimage-

Please take a brochure of all the pilgrimage details. These are available at the

Shrine or at St John the Divine. West Worthing.
