St Chad’s Pilgrimage
Saturday 23 September
An 18-mile pilgrimage walk is being organised to take place on 23 September from St Chad’s Cathedral Birmingham, to Lichfield Cathedral to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, whose official anniversary is 31 October 2017.
Pilgrims will be sent on their way at 9.00am by Dean of St Chad’s Cathedral Gerry Breen, and welcomed at Lichfield Cathedral around 5.00pm by Dean of Lichfield Cathedral Adrian Dorber. Senior church leaders from across the West Midlands will be taking part in the pilgrimage (for some if not all of the distance), including the Catholic Archbishop of Birmingham, Anglican Bishops of Lichfield and Birmingham along with Methodist, United Reformed and Baptist Regional leaders.
