He spoke about pilgrimage and his time at Walsingham in Norfolk. This is a village famed for religious shrines in honour of the virgin Mary and it is also a major pilgrimage centre.

The children had done their research on Walsingham and prepared a list of questions for the Rt Rev Philip. They also asked him about the role and responsibilities of a bishop which he was more than happy to answer.
