3 July 2020 – Following careful consideration it is with regret that it is announced that the Shrine will not be open for resident groups and pilgrims in the month of August.

The Pilgrimage of Healing & Renewal has also been cancelled, though a Mass will be live-streamed from the Holy House on the day at 12 noon. This is due to the on-going situation regarding COVID-19 and concerns about the safety of both pilgrims and staff. We are sorry for the disappointment this will cause to pilgrims who had been hoping to stay at the Shrine.

However, there are various ways by which pilgrims can stay connected with the Shrine’s life of prayer and worship:

The Shrine Church and Gardens are open every day from 10 am  – 3 pm.  Norton’s Cafe-Bar will be opening soon – please watch the website for further updates.

The following online events will be taking place in the months ahead:


Shrine Prayers continues to be live-streamed from the Holy House daily at 6.00 pm.
