The annual Pilgrimage Walk from Holy Trinity to St. Tudno’s began with a short act of worship at Holy Trinity, where the pilgrims were joined by the Mothers’ Union. Eleven pilgrims completed a very wet walk up the Great Orme and visited St. Tudno’s Well by kind permission of the landowners. The Pilgrimage was led by Archdeacon Paul of Bangor and the pilgrims included the Mayor of Llandudno, Cllr Francis Davies. Archdeacon Paul also led the St. Tudno’s Day Eucharist which followed the Pilgrimage, where the pilgrims were again joined by the Mothers’ Union and other members of the congregation.
