It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Archbishop           Peter Smith, who died just before midnight on Friday.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory 


England to be Rededicated as Our Lady’s Dowry

On Sunday 29 March, England will be re-dedicated as Our Lady’s Dowry at 12 Noon. 

Here at West Grinstead, we have signed up for our Shrine Church to become a HOST SHRINE – especially as we are the first Marian Shrine in Britain to be consecrated after the Reformation.

In Particular, on Sunday 29 March, after morning Mass, there will be a special liturgical celebration here at 12 Noon, and so we hope as many people as possible will stay on for that brief liturgy. As such, we shall join in prayer with thousands of others – in churches, schools, university, prison, hospital, or even at home – across the country! ‘Behold’ is a campaign of media launched for the preparation of The Rededication, acting as a guide to help us engage in our journey to March 29th. is the official site for The Rededication and you can find everything you need there. Behold was created on behalf of The Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham.
