Our Lady of Walsingham at Southwark Cathedral

  • Antonia Moffat

The renowned Statue of Our Lady of Walsingham from the Slipper Chapel in Walsingham is presently touring all the Catholic Cathedrals of England, the Dowry of Mary in a mission of prayer for the re-evangelisation and conversion of England and her peoples.

Next week, Our Lady of Walsingham will be in St George's Cathedral in Southwark, from Thursday evening (5pm) 21 February to lunch time on Saturday 23 February 2019.

As a special grace for Our Lady's Dowry Tour a 'Holy House' is built in each Cathedral in which Our Blessed Mother and her divine Child are honoured as they were in Walsingham of old.

There is something about the simplicity of this Holy House which draws people into deep prayer.

It is a great privilege to have the Statue of Our Lady of Walsingham from the Slipper Chapel. For this statue is the most miraculous and renowned in the whole of England!

Mgr John Armitage, the Rector of Our Lady's Shrine will be present throughout and will give varying talks. On Friday night that he will give a talk at 6pm, Mass follows at 7pm and then there is a Eucharistic Healing Service.

If choir groups happen to come together we would appreciate to include impromptu singing of your beautiful Marian anthems and hymns … just come and let me know and I will arrange a time for you!
