Dear Friends of Our Lady,
Greetings from the Catholic National Shrine.
I write to invite you to join the Faithful across the world in the Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary.
Saturday 28th March 2020: The Joyful Mysteries at 7pm
In preparation for the #RededicationAtHome this Sunday, you are invited to pray the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary at 7pm. Pray in private or join us through our website, youtube or facebook. Please share this information with your friends and family so that we can unite England in prayer, powerfully entering into the day of the Rededication together.
Sunday 29th March 2020: Rededication Day
We are inviting you to take part in the Rededication wherever you are. They will be led by our Bishops and priests across the country through the internet. Check your Diocesan and parish websites for timings so that you can be united with our Bishops and priests in prayer at this time.
At the Shrine, the Rededication will take place at noon, at the beginning of our midday Pilgrim Mass which will be livestreamed. To find out more about the Rededication and to download the prayers visit www.walsingham.org.uk/rededication.
Monday 30th March 2020: Novena in thanksgiving for the Rededication
On the Monday following the Rededication, you are invited to join us at the Shrine in praying the Novena in honour of Our Lady of Walsingham in thanksgiving for the Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary and for the Lord’s protection for all affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The Novena will be prayed at the end of each Shrine Mass on livestream. We will continue this novena “until the storm passes”.
Let us intensify our prayer in these days for England and all nations during this time of great crisis:
- Join the Shrine livestream for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, praying especially for the elderly, the vulnerable, for those on the front line and in our NHS, for those in Government and leadership, and all our priests and bishops,
- Pray the Rosary for Our Lady of Walsingham’s intentions for England her Dowry
- Invoke the intercession of the English Saints and Martyrs through praying the Litany
- Pray for the conversion of heart of the people of England and all nations and peoples.
With our best wishes and prayers from England’s Nazareth,
In Jesus and Mary
— Mgr. John Armitage (Rector)
