Lent Reading

The Pilgrim Journey
A history of pilgrimage in the western world by James Harpur

This year’s Lent book tells the fascinating history of how pilgrimage was born in antiquity, blossomed in the Middle Ages, faltered in subsequent centuries, but has enjoyed an extraordinary renewal in modern times. It chronicles the human search for the divine through sacred journeys and holy places

The book can be purchased easily and inexpensively online, but let the Parish Office know if you would like us to order a copy on your behalf. Extracts of relevant chapters will be available to take away each Sunday.
