Lourdes Pilgrimage - 4th Aug to 8th Aug 2014

Pilgrimage to North 2014

Half Term week (26th – 30th May 2014) saw the visit of a group of pilgrims from across the parish visiting the north-east. “Home” for the week was at Youth Village in Consett and the group was very pleased with the welcome they received and with how well they were looked after. In fact some were more than a little jealous of this newly built facility and impressed by this sign of commitment to the youth of the diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. The group welcomed the input of Kathryn Turner – a former member of the Parish of Saint Swithun Wells for several years before taking up her role in Hexham and Newcastle. With the benefit of the input from Kathryn and visits to Holy Island, Durham and Bede’s World the group of pilgrims gained a deeper understanding of and insight into the influence of the northern saints on the development of Christianity in this country. They also enjoyed the beautiful countryside and views on their journeys and felt the 600 mile round trip was well worth the journey.
