BISHOP OF BRENTWOOD BECOMES NEW SCA PATRON

We're delighted to share that Rt Rev Alan Williams, Bishop of Brentwood, has agreed to become a patron of the Student Cross Association.

Bishop Alan is well known to many Student Cross pilgrims from his time as Director of the Catholic Shrine in Walsingham between 2008-14.

EASTER JOY FOR PILGRIMS AT STUDENT CROSS 2019

Glorious sunshrine guided nearly 300 pilgrims as they took part in our 2019 ‪‎Easter, cross-carrying‬ pilgrimage to Walsingham, ending on 21 April.

Ten different pilgrim groups started as far away as Colchester, Epping and Oxford. 5 groups walked 120 miles or more during Holy Week. Pilgrims aged from 0 to more than 70 included nearly 40 higher education students and more than 60 children.

The Student Cross Association (SCA) this year gave out 5515 to help students & other low/unwaged pilgrims to take part in the pilgrimage.

Thanks to all leg leadership teams & national officers Alice Brien (National Director), Matthew Neville (Recruitment) and Ben Ryan (Music) for their hard work in making the pilgrimage a success.

National officers for our 2020 pilgrimage will be Craig Ince (National Director), Matthew Neville (Recruitment) and Naomi Awre (Music).

Student Cross will be back 4-12 April 2020. Do join us.
