Event description

Description

Transport: Pilgrims are encouraged to share cars wherever possible, or ideally organise a shared coach to pick up along the route form your Archdeaconry.

Arrival of pilgrims: The fit and able could be dropped off at Hunston* and walk to the Cathedral along the canal path with brief prayer stations at various points. The pilgrimage will begin with prayers at the start of the canal walk at Hunston. Those unable to walk that far could be dropped off at the coach park on Avenue de Chartres and assemble in the Bishops Gardens where they would be joined by those coming from Hunston. The plan would be to give everyone a small cross to hold throughout the pilgrimage.After a gathering prayer there would be an informal procession to the Cathedral via St. Richard’s Walk.

*(Coaches can drop off at Hunston bus stop just north of St. Leodegars Way off the B2145. For those in cars, parking is available in the small car park a little further north just past the Canoe Club on the left, or alternatively in Hunston Church Car park which will be open for pilgrims. )

Cathedral Service: presided over by Bishop Mark (Chichester and Horsham) and Bishop Richard (Brighton and Hastings):

The Eucharist will be ‘stational’ with the nave cleared of chairs except for a few places for the infirm to sit in key areas of the Cathedral. There will be activities for children during the Eucharist.

Refreshments: after the service there will be a “bring and share lunch” (or tea) either in Paradise or on the south west lawn. If wet we could use the cloisters. Drinks would be provided.

Timings: for the Chichester, Horsham and Brighton Archdeaconaries a start time of 10.30am at Hunston with a 12noon Eucharist at the Cathedral. For Hastings Archdeaconary a more realistic start time of 1.30pm at Hunston followed by the Eucharist at 3.00pm.
