The first of the weekend pilgrimages this year came from SS Peter and Paul, Teddington, and St John's, Isle of Dogs. The party arrived on the Saturday evening by motor bus, reaching Walsingham about 8.30 pm, when the "first visit" was made. Following a day which included the parish mass, the Stations, intercessions, the waters, Benediction, a talk, and short "last visit", the party left. Such a pilgrimage opens the way to many (especially people who are in business all the week) to salute Our Lady of Walsingham, have a good motor run, and spend most of Sunday in the country. We hope many others will follow this programme.
On Thursday June 16th a large party of the Norfolk and Norwich Architects' Association came to visit; this of course was not a pilgrimage. They were very enthusiastic over the buildings, and indeed a great number of people express their delight and ask who our architects are.
A wooden building is being put up as a temporary sacristy and lock-up place for the Sanctuary, as it was becoming more and more impossible for the Sacristan to carry on with the work with no room for anything.
Did any members of the Society see the "Daily Mirror" on Monday, the 13th of June, when entirely without our invitation they very generously gave us the whole back page for illustrations of the pilgrimage, and a very appreciative article on the developments here recently?
