Coventry Pilgrimage 2018

The Coventry Pilgrimage 2018 got underway despite the wet weather on Saturday 31st March as walkers journeyed from Meriden to Burton Green.

The Coventry Pilgrimage route was first mapped for the 2012 pilgrimage celebrating the 50th anniversary of the new Coventry Cathedral. This year the pilgrimage celebrates the centenary of the Diocese of Coventry. The route begins at St Laurence Church, Meriden and continues from church to church for almost 50 miles, circling Coventry, making use of the established Coventry Way long-distance footpath, and finally reaching Coventry Cathedral down the Sherbourne Valley Way.

All are invited to walk some or all of the pilgrimage route. The group will walk a section of 4 to 6 miles on the last Saturday morning of each month for 9 months from Easter Eve, March 31st, to the Eve of Christ the King, November 24th.

Bishop John says:

“It is wonderful to hear news of Coventry Pilgrimage 2018. It is especially good to know that it is happening in this Centenary year of the Diocese of Coventry. Walking and walking together bring huge benefit both spiritually and physical. Again and again in the pages of the New Testamnet we find Jesus walking from place to place and we see the life changing encounters of those who call out to him or come to him as he walks.”
