I hope you are all managing to stay well and safe during these strange times and have managed to get out on some walks in the lovely sunny weather we have had for most of the Summer.
It is extremely disappointing that we have not been able to meet up for our Saint Thomas Pilgrimage. By now we would have been in Abergavenny for our rest day having walked through the beautiful Welsh countryside, towns and villages from Swansea to Margam, Elwenny, Llancarfan, Cardiff, Caerphilly, Newport and Usk. Then on to Longtown, Ewyas Harold and Hereford. We have not missed out completely as your Committee have provionally rebooked the entire St Thomas Pilgrimage for Saturday 14th – Sunday 29th August 2021. The communities we would have been visiting this year were, like us, very disappointed but are looking forward to welcoming us next year.
In the meantime, we have our AGM on Sunday 20th September 2020. This will be an online Zoom meeting and I do hope that as many of you as possible will be able to log in and join us. Further details of how to log in together with the Agenda and the 2019 Minutes will follow.
Your Committee would also like to organise a day walk to take place on a Saturday at the end of September or beginning of October in the Dorking area with a service for deceased pilgrims at St Joseph’s Catholic Church. It is hoped that those who would not be able to attend could join the service via Zoom. The walk will be organised for 30 pilgrims walking in small, socially distanced groups. A date and further details will follow.
It would be lovely to hear from you so please do post your comments about how you’ve been fairing and perhaps add a memorable moment from a past pilgrimage.
