Pilgrimage is enjoying a great resurgence and is more popular than at any time since the Reformation. To make a pilgrimage was often a once in a lifetime event in search of meaning and purpose, often culminating as the pilgrim finally stepped across the threshold at a shrine or other sacred place. The Journeys of Faith series of pilgrimages from Epworth, Louth, Navenby and Sempringham to Lincoln Cathedral provide an opportunity to walk in the steps of Ancient pilgrims.
Beginning at St. Peter’s Church in Navenby, the one day pilgrimage is split into 8 stages with a total distance of 10.7 miles. The route calls at many churches and provides information on the buildings and the communities they serve, as well as help and information on local transport.
At the back of the book can be found a list of churches visited and mileage between them; you can also record your visits here too. Once the pilgrimage has been completed, you will receive an embossed Journeys of Faith Stamp at Lincoln Cathedral shop.
Published by Lincoln Cathedral Publications. Designed to slip easily into a pocket the book is paperback with 47 pages.
