Bishop Jonathan would like to invite members of all the churches in the Huddersfield Episcopal Area to join him for a Pilgrimage Day at Ripon Cathedral, on Saturday, 21st September 2019.
The day will be a relaxed one, giving time to explore the Cathedral and City of Ripon, but it will include space for prayer and reflection, and the opportunity to worship in the beautiful Choir of the Cathedral. If nothing else, Ripon is a lovely location for a day out – and we hope the day will offer much more than that!
The outline programme (subject to change) for the Pilgrimage Day will be as follows:
10.30am Arrive – coffee and tea available
11.00am Introduction to the life of the Cathedral
12noon Eucharist in the Choir led by +Jonathan and a member of Chapter
1.00pm Picnic Lunch (bring your own) in the grounds or Deer Park (weather permitting)
2.00pm Optional Tour of the Cathedral and/or time to explore Ripon
3.30pm Evening Prayer in the Choir
Those who wish to come are invited to make their own way to and from Ripon (though we hope local groups will share cars) and to provide their own picnic lunch (there are also plenty of shops and cafes in Ripon).
We look forward very much to seeing many of you in Ripon on 21st September!
