The Cathedral’s reimagined annual pilgrimage has been hailed a huge success.

Special trails were created to tell the story of Alban. Local residents learnt the significance of red roses in Alban’s story and a Patronal Eucharist and virtual Pilgrimage was lived streamed, with nearly 6,500 people tuning in to hear from special guests including Revd Richard Coles, cleric, broadcaster and former Communard.

In response to what he called ‘the brave new world’ of Zoom and digital meetings, Revd Richard Coles pointed out that places like St Albans Cathedral tell us that ‘Matter matters. It matters that we gather in flesh and blood… in places where those who have gone before us gave theirs as a sacrifice and marked it forever for Christ.’

If you have missed any of the videos, they are available on YouTube to watch now.
