The Bishops are inviting us to prepare for the re-dedication of our country and its people as the Dowry of Mary.
The statue of Our Lady of Walsingham will be visiting Clifton Cathedral on 20th-22nd February and there is a full itinerary for the couple of days.
It has been agreed with the Bishops of England and Wales that the re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Mary will take place on the Feast of the Annunciation, 25th March, 2020.
We are invited to prepere for the occasion by making a Novena (nine days of prayer).

Ypu can maximise your weekly Offering by getting the Government to pay an extra 25% at no cost to you, by joining GIFT AID. This can be done in two ways – Firstly: by Bank Standing Order (monthly) or secondly, using the envelope scheme, whereby, you place your weekly offering on the collection plate. Either way is very beneficial to the Parish, especially when every penny counts! Please contact Vic Steadman via the Parish web site for details. Thank you.
