News about the pilgrimage


The cold, wet weather did not dampen spirits as nearly 300 pilgrims took part in our 2018 ‪‎Easter, cross-carrying‬ pilgrimage to Walsingham, ending on 1 April.

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 nearly 40 higher education students and more than 60 children.

The Student Cross Association (SCA) this year gave out 5550 to help students & other low/unwaged pilgrims to take part in the pilgrimage.

Thanks to all leg leadership teams & national officers Maeve McCormack (National Director), Matthew Neville (Recruitment) and Gabby Wright (Music) for their hard work in making the pilgrimage a success.

National officers for our 2019 pilgrimage will be Alice Brien (National Director), Matthew Neville (Recruitment) and Ben Ryan (Music).

Student Cross will be back 13-21 April 2019. Do join us.
