2020 is the Year of Pilgrimage in the Diocese of Durham
(and many other dioceses)
Four new pilgrim routes to Durham Cathedral are being created.
We are confident that many churches and individuals will be making their pilgrimages this year. And this is a practice that is popular in wider society.
See the recent BBC TV programmes about pilgrimage.
To help us prepare for this Year of Pilgrimage, the Diocese is offering a training day with Archbishop Designate Stephen Cottrell
We are hugely privileged and excited to be able to welcome Bishop Stephen to our Diocese
to contribute to our day on Pilgrimage.
Bishop Stephen is an enthusiastic pilgrim.
and will share his experiences and insights about pilgrimage.
There will also be contributions from the Revd Canon Charlie Allen from Durham Cathedral on the new diocesan pilgrim routes and the Cathedral welcome to pilgrims and workshops on pilgrimage and music, pilgrimage and spiritualty, and local pilgrimage.
Bishop Paul will be with us all day and contribute his own experiences
and insights on pilgrimage.
