EASTER JOY FOR PILGRIMS AT STUDENT CROSS 2017

Fair weather and Christian fellowship were to the fore as more than 300 pilgrims took part in our 2017 ‪‎Easter, cross-carrying‬ pilgrimage to Walsingham.

Eleven different pilgrim groups started as far away as Colchester, Epping and Oxford. 6 groups walked 120 miles or more during Holy Week. Pilgrims aged from 0 to more than 70 included more than 40 higher education students and 60 children.

The Student Cross Association (SCA) this year gave out 5437 to help students & other low/unwaged pilgrims to take part in the pilgrimage.

Thanks to all leg leadership teams & national officers Sarah Browncross and Helen Shannon (National Directors), Maeve McCormack (Recruitment) and Michael Curry (Music) for their hard work in making the pilgrimage a success.

Our new national officers for 2018 are Maeve McCormack (National Director, left), Matt Neville (Recruitment) and Gabby Wright (Music).

Student Cross will be back 24 March - 1 April 2018. Do join us.
