Booking opens for pilgrims from Long Eaton
St Francis parish in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, is one of the parishes that has accepted an invitation to include tours of the cathedral and the Little Company of Mary heritage centre in their Year of Mercy pilgrimage to our cathedral’s Holy Door. Pilgrims will set off to walk from Long Eaton to Nottingham in the morning of Thursday 26th May, and are expecting to follow paths beside two canals and the River Trent. Pilgrims who don’t want to walk (it’ll take for four hours or more) can travel by public transport, car, or bike, and meet the walkers in Nottingham. Since the numbers on the tours are limited, anybody thinking of joining the pilgrimage is asked to visit the pilgrimage web page to see more information and register their name if they decide to take part.
