Day Pilgrimages

If you are unable to come and stay with us then why not book to bring a group for one of the Shrine's Day Pilgrimages. We have an organised programme of services for Day Pilgrimages one Saturday in every month during the season.

Parishes might like to consider booking a Day Pilgrimage as part of a Parish Away Day or around Parish meetings.  We are happy to discuss facilities for this when you book.

Day Pilgrimages can be organised at other times but Parish Priests will will need to lead all their own services and we are unable to provide an organist. It is far better to come on one of the dates below. 

We have a range of options available for day pilgrims:

Lunch in the Refectory

Adult- £13.50  Child £8.10

Hire of the Orangery

£50 per half day


Lunch in smaller groups in Nortons.


Please make the team aware of your preferences when you book.

Pilgrim Leaders can add other elements around this timetable like a First Visit, Stations of the Cross or a visit to the Roman Catholic National Shrine

Accompanying Priests are welcome to hold these additional services for their groups in the Holy House / Shrine Church or in the Barn Chapel.  By prior arrangement the Shrine Clergy will, if possible, provide services for groups who do not come with a Priest.

Sprinkling will take place every day at 2.30pm from Easter to the end of October



There is a limit to the number of pilgrims the Shrine can properly accommodate on any one day, so booking for any type of day pilgrimage is essential. Please check with the Hospitality Department that there is availability for the day you would like to visit.
