Description
Our 21st-century pilgrimage is a journey from Ramsgate on the East Kent coast to Canterbury, considered the heart of Christianity in Britain. Together, we will follow in the footsteps of St Augustine, a Benedictine monk who was sent from Rome by Pope Gregory the Great to bring Christianity to medieval England in 597 AD. Considered to be the founder of the English Church, Augustine became our first Archbishop of Canterbury and was sainted after his death. This weekend walk along The Way of St Augustine is a modern-day pilgrimage for women of any or no faith. It’s a journey of purpose, an opportunity to reflect and enjoy the soothing rhythm of walking in nature with like-minded companions, through the beautiful Kent countryside. You will learn about nature, history and get a chance to experience some pilgrim practices along the way.
