Glastonbury July 19
1,400 people enjoy day in the sun at the Glastonbury Pilgrimage
Yet again the sun shone down on Our Lady of Glastonbury as around 1,400 people from our diocese gathered in her honour and come on pilgrimage to her shrine. People came from far and wide – from London to Swindon, Middlesbrough and Scotland to Salisbury… and even a couple from St Lucia!
It is such a wonderful witness to the town in Glastonbury that amid all the ‘alternative’ beliefs, the old faith and devotion to Our Lady continues. She stands here in the shrine day after day, and watches the world turn. And she will be here to welcome us next year (12th July) and every year, until her Son comes again.
