Walsingham shrine launches live streaming

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham has launched a new website and 24/7 live streaming service to keep Catholics connected to its cycle of prayer.

The new service has been created in time for people to connect online to the ceremonies for the Re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Our Lady next Sunday, March 29.

Mgr John Armitage, Rector of the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, explains below how these changes will work.

“Here at Walsingham, all our pilgrimages that had been planned for this year have, for the foreseeable future, been cancelled.

“Now that doesn’t mean that the Shrine closes, because the churches here, like all the churches in the country, will remain open. And here at Walsingham we will still continue our rhythm of prayer….

“We will be live streaming 24 hours a day and this will be based entirely on adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. During the course of the day there will be Masses, devotions and talks.

“The programme for the day will be given on our website:

“So ‘come and share my joy at the Annunciation’ as once again we treasure and ponder the words of Our Lady.”
