Walsingham Pilgrimage

Students from years 7, 8 and 9 welcomed Fr Richard Aladics for an Introductory information talk about  Walsingham as part of their preparation to  join the Diocesan Pilgrimage to Walsingham at the end of the month.

The Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham was established in 1061 when, according to the text of the Pynson Ballad (c 1485), Richeldis de Faverches prayed that she might undertake some special work in honour of Our Lady. In answer to her prayer, the Virgin Mary led her in spirit to Nazareth, showed her the house where the Annunciation occurred, and asked her to build a replica in Walsingham to serve as a perpetual memorial of the Annunciation.
