Fr Paul’s Sponsored Walk from Shrine to Shrine

Fr Paul Martin has completed his eleven day walk from The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, in Norfolk, to the Shrine of Our Lady of Caversham in Reading, Berkshire.  He set off from Walsingham on Monday 1st May, following his celebration of Mass with the people who had travelled from Caversham to see him on his way.  Also, before leaving, Fr Paul received a blessing from Bishop Alan Hopes, the Bishop of East Anglia.
