The annual St Margaret Clitherow Pilgrimage, York.

This year's Pilgrimage to honour the 'Pearl of York', St Margaret Clitherow, takes place on Saturday 29th March 2014. The Pilgrimage begins with Holy Mass at 1.30pm in St Wilfred's Church, by the Minster, and is followed by a procession through the city, passing by the shrine in The Shambles, and returning to St Wilfred's Church for Benediction.
The above photo shows nos 10 and 11 in The Shambles, the shops which have been identified as the actual butcher's shop owed by Margaret's husband. The shrine is opposite these shops.

Thanks for advertising this pilgrimage. It would be good to have a really big turnout. In 2011 more than 700 people attended.
