The year of 2020 has been unlike any other. As autumn turns to winter, we know that many will be turning their attention to the season of gift-giving, as a way of connecting to loved ones that they may not be able to see over the winter months.
More than ever, we feel this winter season will be best spent gathering strength, and looking forward to next year. It is a time for drawing up plans and dreaming up adventures for 2021 – when, we hope, there will be plenty of opportunities to come together and reflect on the year past.
That’s why we have gathered all that we do to help pilgrims set out on the path, and prepare their journeys onto one page – so that if you’d like to give a loved one the present of pilgrimage for 2021, you can!
