Enrollment on the Walsingham Pilgrimage
The Latin Mass Society's annual Walking Pilgrimage from Ely to Walsingham (which is 58 miles, if you were wondering), attracted excellent numbers this year, and with four priests on the pilgrimage High Mass with deacon and subdeacon was celebrated each day, plus multiple Low Masses.
It seemed like a good occasion to enroll people in the Society of St Tarcisius, and one of the priests, Fr Terrence Naughton, a Conventual Franciscan from Australia, officiated.
Six new members were enrolled, at the two lowest ranks (Junior and Senior Acolyte); the new members came from Manchester, London, Brighton, and Scotland.
Several existing members were on the pilgrimage. The ceremoney took place at our last camping site, behind Great Massingham Village Hall, on Saturday 24th August.
