ENGLAND - DOWRY OF MARY
The statue of Our Lady of Walsingham is to begin a two-year tour of England’s Catholic cathedrals. The tour, which begins with a visit to Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral in June, is intended to help prepare Catholics spiritually for England’s rededication as the Dowry of Mary in 2020. Each visit will take place between a Thursday and a Sunday and involve a triduum (3 days) of prayer. There will be talks on the Dowry of Mary, an evening of Adoration, and a day set aside for visits from primary and secondary schools. The full schedule so far is available to view at dowrytour.org.uk. The country was dedicated as the Dowry of Mary by Cardinal Bernard Griffin in 1948. Cardinal Vincent Nichols has called the rededication a “moment of great promise … for the Church in this country and for our mission”.

HOLY HOLIDAY TO ROME
1st – 5th October, 2018, led by Fr Michael Coleman. £486 per person, plus air fare (Ryanair) from Manchester. Includes daily Mass, half day coach tour of Rome and walking tours of local areas. For more details, see small poster in church porch or Margaret Crummay.

WALSINGHAM MARIST DAY
The annual gathering in Walsingham of Marist Sisters, Brothers, Fathers, lay associates of The Marist Way, and friends, will take place on Saturday, 7th July 2018.
