PILGRIMAGE

We are not a travel agent and cannot respond to the many requests to advise people on how to organise a pilgrimage. Each one is unique. Careful thought needs to be given to the spiritual purpose, needs and budgets of pilgrims. Do not rush from place to place. Time to linger, wander and be is as important as cramming in one more site.

Here we aim to gradually build up information about sites, routes, reources, agencies.  Please send information to brenda.grace@aidanandhilda.org.uk

a prayer...

We arise today
in the Eternal Flow of Mercy
who was here when the land began to breathe,
when the first tribes began to roam,
and when the colonists came to settle.
We arise today
in the Eternal Flow of Wisdom
who is dimly perceived in the stones,
the stories and the studies of all our peoples.
We arise today
in the Eternal Flow of Life
who seeps through land and limb and love.
Amen.
