In The Footsteps of St. Cuthbert

A five-day study tour in the North of England led by Catherine Tiernan

September 23 – 27, 2016

In the first part of the tour we’ll trace the saint’s life on Lindisfarne and Inner Farne, with Bede’s Life of Cuthbert in hand. Then we’ll 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.
