Many of you have expressed interest in taking a pilgrimage to England to explore our rich Anglican heritage. On the pilgrimage we would worship daily in some of England’s most beautiful Cathedrals and sacred sites. Explore university cities, castles, and the English countryside. Most importantly, deepen your faith by traveling as a pilgrim to sites made holy by centuries of prayer.
This summer at General Convention, I made some contacts for spiritual pilgrimages. If you would be interested in taking a journey to Canterbury, please sign up at the back of the church or contact the church office. (Signing up does not commit you, but at least will give me an idea of how many would like to make a pilgrimage.) Here is the tentative itinerary for about 12 days:
- Canterbury Cathedral (3 to 4 nights — attend Evensong and welcoming dinner; pilgrim Eucharist in the cathedral and a full guided tour and evensong.
- Full day in London (St. Paul’s Cathedral) and free time — return to Canterbury
- Attend principle Cathedral Eucharist
- Westminster Cathedral and free time — return to Canterbury
- Windsor Castle
- Ely Cathedral
- Coventry Cathedral
- Oxford (home of C.S. Lewis and visit the Kilns); worship at Christ Church Cathedral
- Salisbury Cathedral 2 to 3 nights (evensong); lodge at Salisbury Cathedral
- Stratford-upon-Avon (attend play)The cost of the tour would be roughly around $4,000 which would include airfare and all entrance fees; bed and breakfasts and a few dinners.
