Parish Pilgrimage to St. Alban's Cathedral
Saturday 10th June 2017
After our last, and successful pilgrimage to Rochester we are now planning a visit to St Alban’s Cathedral – the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain that stands over the place where Alban, Britain's first saint, was buried after giving his life for his faith over 1700 years. Down the centuries, countless pilgrims have gone there to honour the saint’s sacrifice and offer their prayers at his shrine.
We will travel, with our friends from St. Mary’s, by coach, have a morning tour of the Cathedral and Eucharist at the Alban Shrine at noon before free time for lunch and wandering around (Saturday is market day in town). We will then meet for Evensong at 4pm before journeying home.
There will be an exhibition of giant puppets used in the Alban Pilgrimage (held later in June) around the Cathedral on the day.
Separate tours of the tower are available – for those who don’t mind the stairs. These should be booked separately.
For lunch, there is the Abbots Kitchen at the Cathedral and the city is about five minutes’ walk away where there are plenty of places to eat – pubs, cafes and restaurants. There is a park on the doorstep if the weather is good for picnic lunches.
Please take a Booking Form from the back of church and return to Julia to secure your place
