Rededication of England as Dowry of Mary in our diocese

Tuesday 10th March 2020

On Sunday 29 March, parishes and cathedrals around England will recognise the Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary.  This rededication is both a personal promise of the people of the country, and a renewal of entrustment vows made by King Richard II in 1381.
