PILGRIMS’ PROGRESS – WEEK 8
Leaving Mount St Bernard, heading north to Ampleforth, this week took in the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral and York Minster. The incredibly kind Father Robert Thacker, (clad in t-shirt and Doc Martins), offered accommodation in his own home to pilgrims and support staff where a very enjoyable evening was had by all. This week celebrated the birthday of Professor Phillip Adamo, pilgrimage historian and expert on the Valliscaulians. It also marked the very sad departure of Father Martin, heading home to Pluscarden Abbey.
