I am feeling overjoyed that we have so many people signed up for our pilgrimage to The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham next year 11th - 15th May.
When I first had the idea back in late April and saying to myself, why can't we have a pilgrimage to Walsingham from the Mumbles area? I mentioned my idea to Fr Robert and he immediately said to me "that's a great idea". So we spoke to Fr Keith about it and with that our pilgrimage was born.
At first I thought it would be wonderful if 12 or so people showed an interest but to end up with 52 pilgrims is more than I ever dreamt of.
For me, Walsingham is a very Special place; it does so much for me. It's a place where you can find comfort, peace and a sense of inner stillness and calmness.
Early next year we will gather all our pilgrims together so that we can give you all an insight of what to expect. You will find when you come to leave Walsingham you feel completely uplifted by the whole experience.- well that's how it effects me.
I hope and pray that our pilgrims will find some of these things, if not all of them.
Oh, and by the way, look out for a special Christmas television programme from Walsingham in mid December.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and a Blessed New Year
