Eileen Fox, RIP

Pilgrims who journeyed with us in the 1980s and early 1990s will remember Alan and Eileen Fox. Alan has been in touch with the sad news that Eileen completed her earthly pilgrimage on 22 January 2015.

Eileen Fox RIP

Please keep Eileen, Alan and their family in your prayers.

The Arundel Pilgrimage 2015: Saturday 15th to Sunday 30th August 2015

 

masthead2015
Our annual 2 week walking pilgrimage, The Arundel Pilgrimage 2015  this year runs from Saturday August 15th to Sunday 30th August 2015. Bookings now closed, but no booking is required for day pilgrims.

The pilgrimage is celebrating its 40th anniversary! The first pilgrimage was made in 1975 to beat the bounds of Surrey and Sussex in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton and this year we return to our roots in thanksgiving and prayer.  We will cover about 180 miles visiting very many deaneries of the diocese, starting in Chertsey and finishing at Arundel Cathedral.  The route is currently being finalised and our will be published shortly.

Come and join us as each day we joyfully walk together in faith and fellowship as an ecumenical Christian community, recognising our shared Christian mission to know and to serve the Lord and to witness to God’s love for all people.

Pilgrims can join for the whole way , a week or a collection of days.

We should have space for 100 pilgrims, so get in fast to avoid disappointment.

Blistering Years Updated

“Blistering Years”, a term coined at our 20th anniversary in 1995,  is our name for the potted histories of our pilgrimages. They’ve just been brought up-to-date and can be found here. This page includes links to diaries of all of our pilgrimages over 40 years – somewhere for old hands to reminisce and future pilgrims to see what we’re really like.

The Reunion for all past pilgrimages from 1975 to 2015

It’s hard to believe that our pilgrimages have been running for almost 40 years, and we will be celebrating this anniversary with a special reunion in Farnham over the weekend of 10-12 April 2015.

All past pilgrims and their families are very, very welcome to attend. Bring your happy memories and any photos you may have.
