The 5th Anglican Wander Part I

Today has been a busy day. This morning at eight I went to open up the Church and greet the pilgrims already sitting on the steps soaking up the sun. By the time I had lit the candles at the pilgrimage shrine the Church was filling up and at nine we left for sunny Egmanton. We enjoyed a splendid Mass in this beautiful Church before lunch in the Village Hall and a trip to Worksop. Solemn Benediction in Worksop priory concluded the day. More pictures &co tomorrow and Monday.

One of the many shrines to Our Lady in the Shrine Church at Egmanton.

The high altar.

The Church was packed with people who came under their own steam and who came on the coach. At the end of the Mass everyone gathered round the Shrine of Our Lady of Egmanton to sing the Regina Caeli.
