News from the Diocese of Worcester

This last weekend Bishop John Inge and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Birmingham, Bernard Longley led an ecumenical pilgrimage to Canterbury with a group from the two dioceses.  

This is the third jointly-run pilgrimage with many of the travellers having already visited the Holy Land and Rome together.

Highlights included Evensong at the cathedral, candlelit tour of the cathedral, visits to various churches and a trip to Lambeth Palace to meet Archbishop Justin Welby.

Parishioners from St George’s in Worcester, St Mary at Harvington and St Joseph's, Malvern, attended.

'A wonderful weekend full of prayer, worship and friendship. It was a joy to be able to visit the historic sites of pilgrimage with a group of Anglicans and Roman Catholics'.
