Westminster Diocesan Pilgrimage to the Shrine at Walsingham 2023


On Saturday, 23rd September 2023, HE Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Pilgrimage Director Fr John McKenna led pilgrims in the Diocesan Pilgrimage to the Shrine at Walsingham.

In years past, the day was marked by rainfall.  However, this time, wall to wall sunshine poured abundantly over the faithful who attended Westminster's Pilgrimage, with Mass at midday in the Basilica followed by a Procession along the Holy Mile.
