First grandparents pilgrimage to Walsingham
Comment Email Print
 The first pilgrimage to Walsingham for grandparents and their families takes place on the feast of Saints Joachim and Anne, Grandparents of Jesus, on Saturday 26th July 2003. Meeting in the gardens of Elmham House, at 12.30, the walk along Pilgrims Way begins at 1pm. At 2pm there will be children's preparation for Mass, opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation followed by Mass in the Slipper Chapel, and the renewal of Baptismal Vows. For the rest of the day there will be entertainment for all the family including storytelling, facepainting, archery, climbing, falconry, clowns and live music, all organised by the Kingswood Education Trust. A spokeswoman said: "It is hoped that this pilgrimage will be a serious and important contribution to family life; making Jesus and the Holy Family more real to children and young people by focussing on the human elements of his life and in particular his grandparents."
