The Cathedral’s Canon Pastor, Clare Edwards, welcomed a hot but happy group of young pilgrims to the Cathedral yesterday afternoon.
The 22 students, along with two teachers and the Schools’ chaplain, had walked from Rochester Cathedral to Canterbury. They all attend St George’s Church of England School in Gravesend.
Their journey began with a blessing from the bishop’s chaplain at Rochester at 09:00 hrs on Sunday 28 June and walked to Harrietsham to camp overnight. On Monday they walked to Ashford. Finally, after an early start on Tuesday, they completed their pilgrimage at around 16:30 hrs
What an inspiration.
