“SPONSORED” PILGRIMAGE FROM METTINGHAM TO BIXLEY
On Saturday 3rd August 2013, Orthodox Reader Mark Tattum-Smith will undertake a pilgrimage from the College of Our Lady of Mettingham to the church of St. Wandregesilius at Bixley near Norwich. This will be a revival of a pilgrimage that we know was actually conducted by the clergy and students of Mettingham College to the shrine of the saint at Bixley throughout the Middle Ages. The route is approximately 20 miles over varied terrain including roads, footpaths and bridlepaths. Once at Bixley there will be a small moleben service to St. Wandregesilius at the now sadly ruined church.
Mark made the same pilgrimage by foot last year in honour of St. Wandregesilius, but this year he wondered if anyone would be interested in sponsoring him in order to raise funds for the Mettingham Orthodox Trust’s “Common Room Appeal”. If you feel moved to do this fill in the form below giving your name and address and the total amount that you would like to give. We would be especially grateful if everyone who is eligible could sign the gift-aid declaration column so that the Trust can receive the full benefit of your donation.
Mark asks that you pray for fine weather and that, through the prayers of St. Wandregesilius, he will be able to complete his pilgrimage.
