Pentecost Pilgrimage to Vimy Ridge

Pentecost Pilgrimage to Vimy Ridge

May 14 to 20, 2018

This is a unique opportunity to visit and pray at The Canadian National World War 1 Memorial at Vimy Ridge, France, and be a pilgrim to Canterbury Cathedral, England. We will join the Pentecost Sunday Eucharist at the cathedral, which is the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion.   Our personally guided group of 12 people from the Diocese of New Westminster, will be led by Canon Jonathan LLoyd (Rector of St Stephen's West Vancouver, whose home town is Canterbury) and British historian Dr Andrew Thomson (qualified guide with the International Guild of Battlefield Guides). Our small group will meet in Lille, France, on 14 May (90 minutes by train from London, 60 minutes from Paris CDG airport), and end in Canterbury, England, on 20 May. We will also visit Ypres/Passchendaele and Somme, take the Eurotunnel to England and stop to see the White Cliffs of Dover before arriving at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge in the precincts of the cathedral.

The price of GBP 900 per person includes guiding, 6 nights hotel accommodation with breakfast, and high-standard minibus travel. The price does not include your travel to/from the start/end points, and you are asked to book your own flights. There is a single room supplement of GBP 300. Please contact [email protected] gmail.com for further information and to reserve places, by the end of September.
