Thanks to Catholic Mom of 10 for these figures.
Total number of pilgrims who have visited the relics of St Thérèse in England and Wales:
Manchester University Catholic Chaplaincy 2,000
Preston Carmel 2,000
York Minster 10,000
Kirk Edge Carmel (Sheffield) 3,000
Gerrards Cross 2,000
Kensington Carmelite Church 10,000
Notting Hill Carmel 3,500
Wormwood Scrubs 250
Westminster Cathedral 95,000
Grand Total 286,650 pilgrims
So that would explain the one column inch in the print edition of today's Times, which actually referes to Protestant England(!) and then says 300k venerated the relics. PARDON? Three Hundred Thousand People. Oh right, I guessed that from the reporting.
