DOWRY OF MARY:

On 29th March, 2020, England will be rededicated as the ‘Dowry of Mary.’ This will happen in Westminster Cathedral, in Walsingham, in every Catholic Cathedral, in every parish and in as many homes as possible. Mgr John Armitage, the Rector of the National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, has asked people to prepare spiritually for the rededication by praying the Angelus every day after our parish Masses. The Angelus is a most suitable prayer to prepare us spiritually for the rededication, recalling, as it does, ‘some essential moments in the History of Salvation, reminding us of Mary’s ‘yes’ to the Angel Gabriel, which undid Eve’s ‘no’ in the Garden of Eden.’ We profess our faith in ‘The Word, who was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us,’ and in his Death and Resurrection, the eternal destiny to which each of us is called in Christ. I hope that many parishes will respond to Mgr Armitage’s invitation to pray this beautiful prayer after our daily Masses, so that our hearts may be spiritually prepared for the rededication of England as the ‘Dowry of Mary’ on 29 March 2020. Mary, Our Lady, welcomed the coming of Christ into the world and into our lives. She will help us to do the same (from Rt Rev. Bishop Alan Williams).


As part of our preparation after our daily morning Masses we will say The Angelus prayer instead of a hymn being sung.

Parish of Saint Cedd, Goodmayes

WE OFFER OUR SYMPATHY AND PRAYERS TO THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF:



Who died recently.

May they rest in peace.

PENTECOST SUNDAY, ROSARY RALLY RELAY, 31 MAY 2020:


“It is traditional in this month to pray the Rosary at home within the family. The restrictions of the pandemic have made us come to appreciate all the more this “family” aspect, also from a spiritual point of view. For this reason, I want to encourage everyone to rediscover the beauty of praying the Rosary at home in the month of May. This can be done either as a group or individually; you can decide according to your own situations, making the most of both opportunities. The key to doing this is always simplicity, and it is easy also on the internet to find good models of prayers to follow.” Pope Francis Letter on the Month of May.


In response to Pope Francis’ request, set out above, there has been an 8pm May Rosary Mission co-hosted by the London Rosary Shrine, the Basilica of Our Lady of Walsingham, Carfin Grotto in Scotland and Rosary on the Coast. As a culmination to this Rosary Mission, Mgr John Armitage, the Rector at the National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, has invited each diocese to take part in a simple initiative – a Rosary Relay on 31 May 2020. Each diocese has been asked to encourage their people to pray the Rosary either individually, or where possible in groups, during a designated hour. 


The Diocese of Brentwood has been asked to pray the Rosary at 11am on the 31 May, Pentecost Sunday - please see the poster with further details including the prayer intentions for each hour.  I will be praying the Rosary myself during this hour after the live-streamed 10 a.m. Pentecost Mass at Wickford. Please encourage all our people, in whatever ways possible, to join in this National Prayer Initiative.


Yours in Christ and Mary
