Some of our cathedrals are now being used as COVID vaccination centres.
2020 was a year like no other. It had been designated Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage as 2020 saw a remarkable number of cathedral anniversaries and initiatives that helped to tell their stories, past and present.
The pandemic found most of our cathedrals taking their anniversaries online in ever more imaginative and creative.
To mark the project we launched a host of new pilgrim routes – thanks to a collaboration between the British Pilgrimage Trust and the Association of English Cathedrals highlighting the importance of spiritual, mental and physical well-being.
Now there is a pilgrimage route leading to every Church of England Cathedral taking in established wayfarer routes, other places of faith, spiritual pathways and lesser known pilgrim ways.
