In the Footsteps of St Cuthbert
September 19–23, 2018
A five-day study tour in the North of England led by Katherine Tiernan.
In the first part of the tour we will trace the saint’s life on Lindisfarne and Inner Farne, with Bede’s Life of Cuthbert in hand. Then we will follow the saint’s journey to Chester-le-Street and Durham, his final resting place.
The tour will include pilgrimage walks, visits, and talks from visiting speakers. It is designed to be both informative and contemplative, an opportunity to draw closer to the meaning of the great Saint of the North.
The tour will be led by Katharine Tiernan, author of Place of Repose: A Tale of St Cuthbert’s Last Journey.
**The tour is sponsored by The Beshara Trust, and in keeping with the Trust’s aims, is open to people of any faith and religious background. www.besharatrust.org
