Walsingham 2011

Friday, May 20, 2011
This year's Dominican pilgrimage to Walsingham took place on the third Sunday of May, Good Shepherd Sunday. fr Benjamin Earl OP preached the homily at the Solemn Mass celebrated at the shrine. The William Byrd Choir sang at the Mass as part of the celebrations for the 950th anniversary of the establishment of the shrine.

After lunch we walked the Pilgrims' Way into Walsingham, praying the rosary and singing hymns in honour of Our Lady. There was over an hour for looking around the village and spending time together before Vespers and Benediction in the parish church of the Annunciation.
