Uppsala Pilgrimage, Sweden

May 14, 2016
Uppsala Cathedral, Sweden

A prayerful pilgrimage to venerate the great saints of Sweden.

On Whitsun eve, 14th May 2016, Fr. Lindström and some of the faithful from our chapel in Stockholm will gather outside the now Lutheran, but formerly Catholic Cathedral of Uppsala to repeat last year's pilgrimage. After venerating the relics of St. Erik, king and martyr, and St. Bridget, the pilgrims will walk the 6 kilometres to Old Uppsala, where they will pray the litany to the Swedish Patron Saints in front of the altar piece of the 12th-century church, which depicts many of the Scandinavian Saints, including St. Bridget, St. Erik and St. Olav of Norway.
