The Parish traditionally had an annual pilgrimage to Inner Farne, on the Saturday nearest to the Feast of St. Aidan. This began as a Parish event, visiting Inner Farne by courtesy of the National Trust, with the co-operation of Billy Shiel’s boats, and attending Holy Mass in St. Cuthbert’s Chapel. In 2016 it proved impossible to organise the pilgrimage, and it seems unlikely that it will resume in the future.
At the 2014 pilgrimage, Bishop John Arnold, then Titular Bishop of Lindisfarne, Father Martin Stempczyk, Vicar-General and Father Des concelebrated Holy Mass with the assistance of Deacon Jude Newton. Bishop John has since been elevated to the Bishopric of Salford!
