The Latin Mass Society’s local Representatives have the task of supporting Traditional Masses in their areas, and have initiated annual pilgrimages and other special events. We are lucky in Southwark to have several churches where the Traditional Latin Mass is offered. Several times a year, Holy Mass is also offered in our Cathedral Church of St George.
This year’s Aylesford pilgrimage took place on Saturday 5th October.
With the weather in our favour a group pilgrims left from Westminster Catherdral, picking up more pilgrims from Eltham along the way and joined by others who made their own way to the Priory.
The day began with a picnic lunch, followed by Confessions and Sung Mass in the Relic Chapel with music by Byrd.
This year’s Celebrant was Fr Marcus Holden, to whom we are extremely grateful for supporting the event. In the afternoon, he gave an excellent talk on the Brown Scapular, following which a large number of pilgrims were enrolled in the Brown Scapular.
After tea, we ended the day with recitation of the Holy Rosary and Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
Our thanks go to Fr. Holden and to all those at The Friars who made us welcome on the day.
