The Diocesan Pilgrimage to Binsey.
The Diocesan Pilgrimage took place on Saturday 14th July. Vladika Irenei served a Festal Hierachal Liturgy at this traditional pilgrimage site in Binsey, just outside Oxford and concluded with a moleben at St Margaret's Well in Binsey churchyard. About 50 - 60 people from all over the Diocese attended the Pilgrimage. It was followed by a Diocesan Council meeting over lunch. The pilgrimage was centred upon St Frideswide, Patron Saint of Oxford. We will return to St Albans next year in 2019 on May 11th. This will celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Diocese.
