Ecumenical Cell of Our Lady of Walsingham & St Alban

An Ecumenical Cell of Our Lady of Walsingham was established in July 2010 and gathers at the evening Eucharist (7.30pm) on the first Thursday of every month.

In addition, the members of the Cell observe the feasts of the Annunciation of the Lord (March 25th) and Assumption of Our Lady (August 15th), together with the remembrance of the translation of the image of Our Lady of Walsingham from the Parish Church to the present Shrine in 1931 (October 15th.) On these days in particular, local Cells are asked to pray for the work of the Shrine and to give thanks for its witness to the mystery of the incarnation.

The founder members of the Cell were among those who took part in the Ecumenical Pilgrimage to Walsingham in June 2010.

The aims and objects of the Society of Our Lady of Walsingham are:

To honour Mary, the Mother of God and to deepen faith in the incarnation of our Lord.
● To promote devotion to Our Lady and pilgrimage to Walsingham.
● To further, with the aid of Our Lady’s prayers, the conversion of the nations and the re-union of Christendom.
● To seek holiness of life through prayer, the scriptures and the sacraments.
