The coach is booked. Departure will be at 7.45am on Saturday April 23rd from St. Mary's House. Whether you are using the coach or travelling on your own, please bring your lunch box with you. We shall start the pilgrimage at St. Wilfred's Catholic church (Duncombe Place, YO1 7EN; just opposite the Minster) at 10.15am. Then we shall walk in the footsteps of Blessed Margaret Clitheroe as far as the Bar Convent (17 Blossom Street), YO24 1AQ) where we shall have refreshments at noon. A new exhibition dedicated to the Martyrs will be visited there. It is not free but the charge is quite low (just a few pounds - depending on people's age!) After devotional prayers at the Tyburn (Tadcaster Road, near Pulleyn Drive, YO24 1DY) we shall take the direction of Askham Richard Village (Main Street, YO23 3PT) for Mass which we shall try to start at 2.30pm followed by refreshments.
