Easter Cross

Easter Cross next takes place 19-21 April 2019

Easter Cross walks for one day – on Good Friday.

We gather on the Thursday evening for the Mass of the Lord’s Supper and to prepare for our walk the following day. Unlike the groups that walk all week we do not have the chance to get to know each other well before Good Friday and so needing to make the most of this Thursday gathering it is a great evening of gathering on a worship and social front.

On Good Friday we will gather at the Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea, in Wells-next-the-Sea, to start our day of walking. Our route will take is through Wighton on our way to Binham where we will have a stop at Binham Priory where we will be only a few minutes walk away from our lunch stop. After lunch we head for Great Walsingham en route to Little Walsingham and our finishing point at the Basilica of Our Lady of Walsingham where we will meet the other legs of Student Cross.

It is an amazing day and a chance to savour the Norfolk scenery as we talk, reflect, sing and pray.

After this we join with the other legs of Student Cross for the weekend, apart from our AGM on Saturday morning and joining together, as a leg, to eat on Saturday evening before Student Cross celebrates the great Easter Vigil.

For those of us who cannot walk with a leg through the whole week, it is our way to support the Student Cross Pilgrimage. For many reasons Easter Cross is steeped in the history of Student Cross so why not come along and find out more?

If you want a taste and you’re not sure, then go to the Basilica on Good Friday afternoon from 3pm onwards and watch the legs arriving – it is the most amazing experience and you will want to try it.
