PilgrEMMAge

Share in this remarkable young pilgrim's journey of strong faith and selflessness.  

In preparation for receiving the sacrament of Confirmation, Emma undertook a pilgrimage, not just for herself, but for the benefit of others. The 100 mile journey challenged her physically, mentally and spiritually. The thought of helping others keeping her going every inch of the way.

Why does a 13 year old pilgrim commit herself to such an undertaking?

 "I chose a 100 mile bike ride from Market Rasen to Walsingham as a pilgrimage before my confirmation. I wanted to raise money for two charities in paticular as my faith has always been a big part of my life.  I  chose the sick and retired priests fund . I also picked Papyrus as it is close to my heart as this year I lost one of my friends to suicide, and the work Papyrus does is incredible and saves so many young lives."
