Hockley Easter Pilgrimage to Walsingham
Saturday 11th April 2015

Twelve members of the Hockley Ordinariate Mission spent four days in Easter Week on Pilgrimage to Walsingham. They were accompanied by Fr Jeffrey Woolnough, the group Pastor, and Fr Antony Homer from the London Central group.

The group stayed in the Anglican Shrine and their Pilgrimage activities happened at both there and in the Church of the Annunciation in the Friday Market and in Chapel of Reconciliation and the Slipper Chapel.

Michael Halsall, one of the group, said it was a wonderful eccumenical occasion. "We were made supremely welcome as residents of the Anglican Shrine, bumping into old and familiar faces, but realising also that our spiritual lives reside elsewhere.

"Our pilgrimage included many of the traditional aspects of the past, such as a first and last visit to the Holy House, and joining in with Evening Prayer. However, it was equally a joy to share in the mass and other devotions with our Catholic brothers and sisters in the local Church of the Annunciation, and Chapel of Reconciliation.

"Given the glorious sunshine, trips out to Wells-next-the-Sea and Cromer added to the holiday atmosphere , as did a tipple or two. This will hopefully be the first of many such events, and we hope to be joined from first time pilgrims from the local Southend deanery."
