Not ALL those

who Wander are lost


National Catholic Men's Pilgrimage

27th - 28th April 2019

A small band of very Merrie Men brought life and joy to the English countryside. The Rosary was prayed loudly, hymns sung gustily and the enjoyment of whisky debated widely.


We stopped at the old abbey grounds for Benediction - the site of the 11th Century Anglo-Saxon Shrine of the Holy House of Nazareth..


And so to the afternoon and evening - a rousing talk from Ferdi McDermott on educating the young Catholic men of the future. Then to the pub for beers and discussion. What a day!
