The Dowry of Mary Tour – Arundel and Brighton

During the course of 2018 to 2020 the statue of Our Lady from the Slipper Chapel at the Catholic National Shrine in Walsingham will be taken to each Cathedral in England for a three-day triduum of prayer, as part of the preparation for the re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Mary in 2020.

 

“When England goes back to Walsingham,
Our Lady will return to England”
Pope Leo XIII

The Walsingham (Pynson) Ballad reflects the tradition that the title ‘Dowry of Mary’ goes back to St Edward the Confessor, in whose reign (1042-1066) the Holy House was built. The Holy House in Walsingham was erected as a replica of Mary’s house in Nazareth, which led to England becoming known as the “Holy Land, Our Lady’s Dowry”, and Walsingham being called the “New Nazareth”. The 2020 rededication as the Dowry of Mary will be the offering of the faith of the people of this country to the Mother of God, to seek Our Lady’s prayers for the loving care and protection of our country.

You can take part in this activity and renew your personal “YES” to the Lord Jesus when the statue of Our Lady of Walsingham comes to Arundel Catherdal from the 28th November to the 30th November 2019. Further details will be provided over the coming weeks.

More information on the Dowry Tour and the rededication of England can be found on the Dowry Tour website (link).
