4,000 pilgrims at Glastonbury

MORE than 4,000 people travelled from all parts of the Clifton diocese-some of them on foot-last Sunday for the annual pilgrimage at Glastonbury, scene of the martyrdom of the last Abbot, Richard Whiting, and his two companions. Fourteen crosses, replicas of that or Calvary. were set up for the opening prayers by Bishop Rudderham and the reading of the pilgrimage intentions.

From the Tor, where the martyrdom took place, the pilgrims walked in procession to the Convent field, being joined on the way by the statue of Our Lady of Glastonbury.

The statue was set up in a permanent open-air sanctuary for dialogue Mass celebrated by the Bishop. The sermon was preached by the Abbot of Prinknash, Fr. Dying, Rushton, O.S.B.
