Here's a bonus for you all! We came across an open chapel with great acoustics in Norwich Cathedral and had our own little flashmob. The students' voices echoed through the church, and all the visitors loved it!
Everyone loved our first day in Norwich. We visited the shrine church of Dame Julian of Norwich, and the students stood in the place where she once lived. Then on to the Cathedral. Our students were blown away by the sheer size and beauty of it. We walked around town and had a great dinner, and now we're back in the hotel.
To St. Albans tomorrow!
We had an incredible few days at Walsingham. The Flock sang at the healing service, where we drank from the medieval well, prayed, and received various ministries such as anointing and reconciliation. Their voices were truly incredible. We made our pilgrimage from the Slipper Chapel, which is about a mile--barefoot no less--and everyone loved the experience. They sang again at the pilgrim Mass, and offered their intercessions at the Holy House.
Wi-fi and cell service were not great in Walsingham, but surrounded by the beauty of the English countryside, we were ok with that. :)
We're all having a wonderful time. Off to Norwich!

"Parallel Bible feels a lot like Instagram, but instead of filters, it has you tag your photos with biblical verses. In doing so, it attempts to make a universal text feel personal, and shareable, in the same way one might post a photo on any other social media..."
