The Youth Pilgrimage is a week of lively worship, teaching, fellowship and fun for 11-18 year olds.

The traditional pilgrimage devotions are presented in an up beat, lively and enjoyable way which makes them relevant for our young people in today’s world. Over 500 young people gather in Walsingham for the week from all over the UK and internationally, giving them a chance to meet other Christians and explore their faith in a safe environment. Over the years it has changed the lives of countless young people who have never forgotten their week in Walsingham and many of them have come to love the Shrine and to make the pilgrimage ever since.

The week includes:

  • Daily Mass in the Big Top
  • Fantastic music provided by CJM
  • BBQ and disco
  • Lively worship
  • Late Night Liturgy
  • The Holy Mile Walk
  • Crafts, Sports, Music and Inflatables
  • Fun, friendship and football!
  • A variety of Workshops
  • Free afternoons to explore or visit the beach
  • And lots more!
