Pentecost Pilgrimage to Vimy and Canterbury
September 5, 2017
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 the Reverend 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 May 14, 2018 (90 minutes by train from London, 60 minutes from Paris CDG airport), and end in Canterbury, England, on May 20. We will also visit Ypres/Passchendaele and Somme before taking the Eurotunnel to England and stopping to see the White Cliffs of Dover before arriving at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge.
The price of 900 GBP (British pounds) 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 300 GBP. Please contact Rev. Jonathan LLoyd for further information and to reserve places, by the end of September.
