A Rosary on the Coast for Faith, Life & Peace in the British Isles is set to take place on Sunday 29th April 2018, at 3pm. A number of locations in East Anglia have already signed up to take part.
Low Tide 1pm and High Tide 7.15pm – so we are just fine!
We will meet at 2.30pm for gathering and preliminary prayers and then 3pm for the Glorious Mysteries of the Holy Rosary…. As you approach the Beach you will see the National Coast Watch Station on the left. At that point drop down onto the Beach on the right-hand side and you will see us with a Statue of Our Lady of Walsingham.
Directions & Parking:
- Car Parking at the Beach Carpark along Beach Road – NR23 1DR
- If the day is very sunny – this car park fills up - be aware and arrive early!
- There are toilets and a Beach Café.
- Parking Costs for cars – 1hr - £2, 2hrs- £3.50 and 4hrs - £6
- If you cannot park by the Beach you will need to find a carpark in the town area. Then you will have a mile-long walk to the Beach from the Harbour! So give yourselves plenty of time.
Wells Next the Sea is not the best for Coaches –you can only park in the Freeman Street Carpark – NR23 1BQ – and then there is a 5-minute walk to the Harbour and then the mile-long walk to the Beach! So give yourselves plenty of time! See you at Wells-Next the Sea for Rosary on the Coast!
Bishop Alan Hopes has lent his support: “I commend wholeheartedly the national prayer initiative Rosary on the Coast. Our parishes are encouraged to make their way to a location on the coast, and to say the Rosary in union with Catholics around our country’s shores, for three purposes: the renewal of the faith in this Dowry of Mary, a greater recognition in our culture of the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death, and finally for peace for our country and the world, in a time of great instability.
Mary has always been for us the source of our hope and the cause of our joy, for it is from her that we received the Saviour, the Light of the World, whom the darkness cannot overcome.
I hope a great many of you will have the opportunity to take part in this timely initiative, to prove the truth of that promise Our Lord once made: “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in their midst.”
