Inaugurated in 2016 for the Year of Mercy, this 2-day walking pilgrimage between Leeds Cathedral and Ripon honours St Wilfrid who together with Our Lady of Unfailing Help, is a Patron of the Diocese of Leeds. The route passes through some of the most historic sacred sites in the Diocese: including the mediaeval wayside shrine of Our Lady of the Crag in Knaresborough; our Parish of St Joseph’s, Bishop Thornton where the upper room of the C18th Presbytery is the oldest Mass House in the Diocese; Markenfield Hall with its Recusant Catholic links; Fountains Abbey and finally Ripon, which was home to the Shrine of St Wilfrid in Ripon Cathedral. The Pilgrimage ends with Mass at the Catholic Church of St Wilfrid - an architectural masterpiece by Joseph Hansom and EW Pugin.
