New Dawn Conference moves into Walsingham Shrine

For the first time this year, the Catholic family conference New Dawn in the Church will be running its main events in the grounds of the Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham.  

The conference will run from Monday 1 to Friday 5 August, and this will be the 36th summer it is taking place. New Dawn is a residential Conference that in the past has welcomed 2,500 pilgrims in person and reached thousands more online, with the purpose of bringing each pilgrim to a deeper personal relationship with God the Father in His Son Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

In the words of its founder, Myles Dempsey, New Dawn is a place where pilgrims can experience “the beauty of the Church… in all her splendour; the Church with all its lights on and all its aspects celebrated – the Charismatic, the Liturgical, the Marian, the Eucharistic, the Sacramental, the Mystical… and for the whole family to be there.”

This year there will be speakers from overseas and the UK, including Allegra Mutanda, Damian Stayne, Michelle Moran, Niall Mc Donagh, Dr Caroline Farey, Fr John Baptist Bashobora and Derek Williams.

The conference will also feature music ministry, healing and prayer ministry and children’s and youth ministries. Conference organiser Gary Stephens writes: “We are especially excited to share that this year’s youth ministry will be headed up by two expert youth ministers from the USA to provide fun, faith-filled, and practical ways for our young people to live out their Catholic Faith.” 

There will also be social and food tents for refreshment and fellowship.
