The Walsingham Walkers are a group of Catholic men who have formed an association to organise an annual walking pilgrimage from London to Walsingham. This is very much in the tradition of the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom www.guild-ransom.co.uk that used to run a similar pilgrimage for over 50 years, taking the prayers and petitions of Ransomers to the Shrine at Walsingham as part of its Novena appeal.
The current Walk has been encouraged not just by the Guild, but also by the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, as evidenced by the letters that can be found on the ‘Support’ tab.
In addition to the Walkers themselves, there is a prayer support network through the ‘Friends of the Walsingham Walkers’. All those who are part of the network are kept up to date with the planning of each Walk as well as being sent a copy of the detailed notes of the Walk once it has been completed. If you would like to join the network, or participate in this year’s Walk, please complete and send the Enquiry Form on the ‘Contact’ tab.
