London: Lost Angels return to Rosary Shrine

Lady Chapel

Lady Chapel

Source: St Dominic's Priory

On the feast of the co-patroness of the Dominican Order, St Mary Magdalene recently, Fr Lawrence Lew, Prior and Parish Priest at St Dominic's, Haverstock Hill, announced the completion of restoration works at the Rosary Altar in the Lady Chapel.

This includes the replacement of the missing statues of two beautiful angels and two votive lamps in the Chapel.

Work on phase 1 was completed ten years ago when the altar was restored, re-gilded, and the painted angels were remade after they had been whitewashed. Now, phase 2 (the 'Lost Angels' project) is complete. With the two angels in place, the two votive lamps burn here perpetually: one for the intentions of the 'Friends of the Rosary Shrine', and one for the intentions of the Benefactors of the Rosary Shrine.

Holy Mass is now celebrated every weekday at the Rosary Altar: Mondays and Fridays at 10am, and Tue, Wed, Thu, at 7:30am.

Entry is only through the newly-restored Lady Chapel porch accessed via Alan Cheales Way.
