The Glory of Catholic England

Join a small group of Regina Magazine insiders (ages 21-35) as we walk the steps of Shakespeare, Chesterton and Belloc on the Sceptred Isle from August 25-September 2, 2018. Join young English Catholics as they tread the paths of the saints who walked in the medieval pilgrimage of Our Lady of Walsingham. Explore the chapels, the bookstores and punting on the rivers of the great Catholic-founded universities at Oxford and Cambridge. Visit John Henry Newman's ‘Littlemore' at Oxford, as well as the great Bodleian Library and the private collection of Chestertonia at the Oratory there. Marvel at Westminster Abbey and see the great Tomb of St Edward the Confessor, plus the Tower of London and Tyburn Tree, where St. Thomas More, St John Fisher, and so many other Catholics were martyred. Latin Masses in Pugin Gothic Revival churches, pub crawls, medieval castles, breath-taking cathedrals — and lots of fun!
