St. Patrick’s Pilgrimage with Kiran Young Wimberly

Sunday, 17 March 2024, 1.00pm

This pilgrimage is in honour of St Patrick, who is now widely accepted as a common Christian saint who crossed the ford at the Farset river near the Big Fish and made his way through what is now the Cathedral Quarter to establish the “Church of St. Patrick of the White Ford” which later became known as “The Old Church” or Shankill.

Meeting at the Big Fish and walking through the Cathedral Quarter, visiting Belfast Cathedral and St. Patrick’s Church which houses a fragment of the bone of St. Patrick, taken from Downpatrick to Rome a thousand years ago and returned to Belfast in the 1860’s, finishing at St. Matthew’s Church on the Shankill Road, site of the first church in Belfast, which it is believed was founded by St. Patrick.

Kiran Young Wimberly is a Presbyterian (USA) minister and spiritual director living in Ballycastle, County Antrim. She is also a musician and podcaster; a retreat and pilgrimage leader; and a consultant in spirituality and resilience.
