Retreats and Pilgrimages

Journeying to a holy place can allow us to step away from our busy routine, making time for God, ourselves and each other. This can strengthen our faith and help us to reflect on our lives. 

Self-guided retreats, individual and group, can take place in our Guest House: 4 Canon Lane. This tranquil property offers bed and breakfast in comfortable en-suite bedrooms. Your time is entirely your own - you might choose to enjoy the calmness of the Cathedral and the beautiful choral music of Evensong. The peaceful Bishop's Palace Gardens are just a few steps away, with the South Downs and Sussex coast nearby too.

If your group, or your parish, are interested in making a pilgrimage to Chichester Cathedral, please contact Charlotte Rattray, in the Liturgy and Music Department lmassistant@chichestercathedral.org.uk We can offer special liturgy, suitable for pilgrims of all ages, which moves around the Cathedral and includes: washing hands, lighting candles, prayers and singing, before processing to the Shrine of St Richard for devotions.

Alternatively, you may wish to join our regular worshippers, or perhaps your group has something different in mind and we would be happy to organise this.
