Augustine Pilgrimage Route in Kent

Augustine Camino

The Augustine Camino is a relatively new pilgrimage route within the Diocese of Southwark, running between Rochester Cathedral and The Augustine Shrine in Ramsgate.  Their Founder, Andrew Kelly, will be offering a number of one day guided tours this Summer and a FREE one day pilgrimage is offered on 8th June from 8.30 am - 5.30 pm between Faversham and Canterbury Cathedral, ending with a Pilgrimage Service within the Cathedral.  For further information and a Narthex poster, click here.

Although we all enjoy the idea of going on pilgrimage abroad, for many it is not practical for a variety of reasons, such as finances, family or limited health.  The Augustine Camino is a practical way forward in order enjoy to enjoy the benefits of taking time out to reflect and pray without being too far from home or spending a large amount of money.

The overall Pilgrimage is 70 miles in total and can be reasonably walked in one week (or more, if preferred!).  It aims to take in the beautiful Kent countryside as well as places of history and heritage en route, including relics of St Thomas More, a number of churches, including some stunning stained glass windows, and a chance to explore affiliations to a number of saints, not least of which is St Augustine, who is considered Apostle to England, founder of the English Church and one of our three diocesan patrons. There will also be a chance to stop off for a good pub lunch and spend time talking and praying together. 

For those wishing to embark on more than a one-day pilgrimage, baggage transfer is available, as is a guidebook and Pilgrim Passport which you can get stamped along the route.
