Jubilee Pilgrimage 2021
In the summer of 1221, the first Dominican friars landed in Kent and journeyed on foot through Canterbury and London, before arriving at Oxford and beginning their British mission there. In 2021, to mark the 800th anniversary of the Dominicans in Britain, a group of Friars made this journey again, following in the footsteps of the original Friars.
