Children from many parts of London crowded St. Mary's, Cadogan Gardens, last Sunday, for the first rally of those who had made pilgrimage, in the past two years, from their schools to the Slipper Chapel at Walsingham, Upwards of five hundred children, with their parents and friends, attended.
In the outdoor procession, a function favoured by glorious weather, a copy of the historic figure of Our Lady of Walsingham was carried. Numerous spectators watched the pageant with interest, especially in the busy King's Road.
On the return to the church the children were addressed by the Rev. B. Scott-James, of Walsingham. Fr. Scott-James reminded his young hearers of the National Pilgrimage of Youth which is to take place next year, and asked them to prepare to take part on that occasion. Details of this pilgrimage were printed in another note. The rally ended with Benediction, given by Fr. F. C. Devas, SJ.
