On Sunday 29th March at 12noon, The Rededication will take place throughout the country at all the cathedrals and number of Parish Churches including St. Paul’s, Cantley.
As King Richard II once gave England as a gift to Our Lady, so we are invited to give ourselves, as the people of this country, to Mary.
We respond to this invitation on the day of Rededication in two ways; by making a personal promise and a communal entrustment.
Our personal promise brings us closer to Mary, the first disciple of Christ. In this we unite in her joy by following her openness to God’s call.
Our communal entrustment unites us together as the people of our country in prayer, by renewing the vows of dedication made to Mary by our ancestors.
Unfortunately, due to the increasing risks being presented by the coronavirus resulting in the introduction this week of a number of restrictions, the service that was planned to take place on Sunday 29th March at 12 noon, will not now be taking place.
Next week we will however circulate a copy of the service and we would suggest that you invite members of your family, friends and parishioners who live nearby to you, to meet together and watch the livestreaming of the service taking place at Walsingham at 12moon that day.
