THE MARIAN MONTH OF MAY

The Pontifical Council for the New Evangelisation has called for a universal daily prayer to be offered for the end of the Covid-19 Pandemic during the month of May and that each day during the month will focus upon one of the international Marian Shrines. 

 

  We have been asked to note that Saturday 1 May 2021 has been assigned for Our Lady of Walsingham with the prayer intention in favour of the Holy Souls. We have therefore been asked to pray the Rosary in spiritual unity with the Holy Father, through the intercession of Our Lady of Walsingham.

NATIONAL DAY OF REFLECTION FOR COVID-19

The Prime Minister has asked for a National Day of Reflection on the first anniversary of the first lockdown this coming 23rd March.  The President and Vice President of the Bishops’ Conference have developed this theme, asking all Catholics to hold this day not only as one of Reflection but of Prayer, with an encouragement for all our people to pray for the many needs, hopes and sorrows that have emerged over the last year.
