Every year in the middle of July, Christians from all over the country visit Glastonbury for the great Annual Pilgrimages. Hundreds, with their church communities, line up in the High Street with their banners, priests and choirs and parade into the Abbey Grounds. There they hold services, celebrate Holy Communion, share picnics, and meet each other in the shadow of the ruined Abbey, site of the first Christian church on English soil. The Anglican Pilgrimage is on the Saturday, and on the Sunday, Roman Catholics meet on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor, from where they reverently carry the image of Our Lady of Glastonbury into the Abbey, and celebrate Holy Mass
