Big Events This Year
Re-dedication of England to Our Lady – 29th March
Our planned procession and blessing in front of the grotto has been cancelled along with the gathering in the hall afterwards. Canon John O’Toole will visit us at a later date.
As our country, along with those across the world, prepare to manage the COVID-19 virus outbreak, it is important to note how this affects The Re-dedication of England as Mary’s Dowry. The COVID-19 pandemic is an example of why The Re-dedication is so important at this moment. In this time of fear and uncertainty, it is of the greatest importance for us to place ourselves under the protection and guidance of Christ through Mary, Our Mother.
The Bishops of England and Wales have advised that we must not gather for public acts of worship in our churches, which means that public Masses are not being celebrated until further notice. Do feel encouraged to make your personal act of prayer at home at 12 noon. If circumstances mean that we cannot make The Re-dedication together in our communities, we will still be united in our prayer! You can download the Re-dedication prayers at www.behold2020.com or find them on their Facebook page.
