PILGRIMAGE CO-ORDINATION TEAM

On this page you'll find details of the volunteers who make up our pilgrimage co-ordination team. If you'd like to contact any of our co-ordinators, please do so via the pilgrimage office. Thank you.

Our pilgrimage director, who is appointed by the Bishop, appoints a team of co-ordinators each year to assist him with the organisation and planning of the pilgrimage. Each co-ordinator is responsible for a different area of the pilgrimage and all are volunteers who give their time generously throughout the year to ensure  the best pilgrimage experience possible for our pilgrims.
