The Martyrs' Walk

As has become customary on the feast of the Lancaster Martyrs, yesterday a group climbed the hill above the Cathedral to pray at the execution site. Earlier in the day Mass had been celebrated for the feast.

After a significant amount of rain in recent weeks, the Lord was kind to us with the weather. Here the group sets out from the Cathedral and heads up East Road.

On arrival at the field, everyone headed towards the small monument which marks the site. There the Rosary was said. The day was rounded off with Exposition and sung Vespers with Benediction and the Litany of the Lancaster Martyrs.
