On Friday 8th December the Church celebrated a special day in its calendar, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady. This traditionally marked the official end of the Shrine’s pilgrimage season.
There was a Sung Mass in the Shrine Church and The Revd. Canon Andrew Howard, Vicar of St Wilfrid’s Parish Church, Cantley Doncaster. His Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant, Lady Dannatt, was present and, following the Mass, there were refreshments in Nortons for the Shrine Staff and local community and a presentation of plans to restore the Barn Chapel.
