Winchester to Canterbury Ecumenical Pilgrimage organised by
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF ARUNDEL & BRIGHTON
‘Walking a prayer for Peace’ All welcome
Sat 13th – Sun 28th August 2016
Are you interested in walking? Do you want to join a travelling Christian community? The Arundel and Brighton Ecumenical Walking Pilgrimage are making its way from Winchester to Canterbury following parts of the St Swithuns and Pilgrims Way.
This year we are offering our pilgrimage as a prayer for the people suffering the effects of conflict or fleeing persecution. Come and explore our faith and Christian heritage, as well as the English countryside and churches we pass through.
The journey will be as important as the destination. We sleep in church, school or community halls, dine together, walk, laugh, sing and pray together. We follow footpaths rather than roads wherever possible.
Come and walk with us! Two weeks for under £200.
You need to be over 16 (or accompanied by an adult), able to walk an average of 15 miles per day at a moderate pace and make your own way to Winchester and home from Canterbury.
Our luggage is carried by van to each overnight destination so only a daypack is needed for supplies. Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner are included in the price, all organised by past pilgrims on a voluntary basis.
