Traveling to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne with the Cape Gazette

February 2, 2018

In October, this faithful group of Gazette readers gathered on the northeast coast of England for a Celtic pilgrimage led by Rev. Jeff Ross from St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lewes and Rev. Mary Allen from St. Martha’s in Bethany Beach. Here they are pictured with friends from Arkansas, Mexico and Prince Edward Island in front of Lindisfarne Priory where they gathered to hear the word of the Gazette. An important Christian site, Lindisfarne Priory was a Benedictine monastery built in the eleventh century which, even today, remains a place of pilgrimage. Its location on what is known as the Holy Island adds to the mysticism and sheer serenity of Lindisfarne Priory, particularly as this picturesque island is only accessible from the mainland twice daily during low tide.
