Sadly this event has been cancelled. The organisers say: Cancelled this year folks – we will let you know if we can go later in the year:) If you would like to do a virtual pilgrimage during that time, or a few days group online retreat / reflection and walking in your own place then let us know!
We will walk part of St Cuthbert’s way and across the ancient pilgrims path to Holy Island.
There will be opportunity for prayer, reflection, walking and lots of socialising!

Accommodation is in a Bunkhouse on the mainland. This is basic accommodation with bunkbeds and simple facilities. There is an open fire and some storage heating.

Each day we will drive to the start of the walk and arrange to be collected from the end. The terrain is easy but open countryside and so it is essential to have good walking shoes, a backpack and waterproof jacket.
Each day we will have prayer together and opportunity for Mass on a couple of the days.
