Gerrards Cross and Aylesford

The end of the tour draws ever closer, yet there are certain to be great things to come. Above, the relics at St Joseph's, Gerrards Cross, a Carmelite church in the Diocese of Northampton. Bishop Peter Doyle led the celebrations here, and - as you can see - once again many children were involved.

Today the relics spend a full day at the Friars, Aylesford, where many people gathered outdoors at their arrival. This Carmelite priory attracts a great many visitors each year, but this week it will be very much busier than usual. Some pilgrims are travelling there from the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, which is not hosting the relics. There are just a couple of stops left: the Carmelite Church in Kensington tomorrow, and then the tour finale at Westminster Cathedral, Monday-Thursday. Keep up-to-date at
