The Bishops of England and Wales have agreed to rededicate England as the Dowry of Mary. This will take place on March 25th, 2020.
In preparation for this great event there will be a two-year spiritual preparation during which the statue of Our Lady of Walsingham will be taken to every cathedral in England for a three-day triduum of prayer. This is being done under the banner of the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom, in partnership with the Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, and with the support of Youth 2000. It is hoped that local evangelisation teams will also help and other catholic organisations.
Each triduum will begin on a Thursday evening, all day Friday, Friday evening with a possible 'night fever' style adoration event, and conclude on Saturday with mass around midday.
Resources will be made available by the National Shrine for all cathedrals and it is hoped these will filter to the catholic parishes throughout the country. This will help bring to fulfilment the prophecy spoken by Pope Leo XIII in 1887, "When England returns to Walsingham, Our Lady will return to England".
We pray for a rapid return of Our Lady to her Dowry.
