Marriage and Family Week

The Marriage and Family Week is an event put on by the Shrine for families wanting to come on pilgrimage to the Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady, to grow in faith, to spend time together and with other families, in prayer and relaxation.

The Shrine will be offering its daily liturgy including Mass, Office, Rosary, Adoration and Confession. There will also be specially organised additions such as a low-intensity programme of talks and workshops for parents and children, a renewal of marriage vows, a blessing of the children, evening Adoration, and a celebratory supper on Thursday evening.

Whilst the Shrine is organising some activities, families will be welcome to initiate sports and other entertainment. A popular event last summer was a Rosary walk along the Pilgrim Way on the Feast of the Assumption, followed by a candle-lit procession through the village with parishioners of the various churches in little Walsingham, ending with fireworks at the Anglican Shrine.

There will be plenty of spare time scheduled to take advantage of the local places of interest including the sandy beaches and nature reserves alongside other places of interest in the area that make Norfolk a popular holiday destination for families. More information will be provided on your arrival.

Families are invited either to camp or stay at the Shrine accommodation in the village.

For further details about this event and to register email or call the Mission Team Office on 01328 801 007.

PLEASE NOTE: Access to workshops and talks at the Camp Site will be restricted to those who have pre-registered for this event ahead of the booking deadline of 31 July 2019.
