Saint Etheldreda: Abbess Of Ely On Tv & A Walking Pilgrimage



At 7am on Thursday 23rd June a 60 minute programme about this Saint will be on EWTN (sky 589). Despite her vow of purity and desire to serve the Lord as a nun, St Etheldreda is forced into marriage by her Father. She miraculously escapes and becomes the Abbess of Ely (No, not the place in Cardiff, but a place in Norfolk, no doubt named after that part of Cardiff!)

Not only this, but later this year, 26th-28th August, there will be a walking Pilgrimage from Ely (No, still the one in Norfolk) to Walsingham. There will be lots of fun, singing, praying, nice Old Rite Masses and even some walking, but no running we hope. (Remember the very wise bears in Prince Caspian).
