Our Lady of Walsingham
Is a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary venerated by Catholics and Anglicans associated with the Marian apparitions to Richeldis de Faverches, a pious English noblewoman, in 1061 in the village of Walsingham in Norfolk. Lady Richeldis had a structure built named "The Holy House" in Walsingham which later became a shrine and place of pilgrimage.
St Mary's Barnham has a long association with Walsingham and in recent years reinstated annual pilgrimages to the Shrine. Pilgrims from the parish visit twice a year and can often be found at the National Pilgrimage in May as well as visiting independently.
In 2018 a Cell of Our Lady of Walsingham was established under the patronage of Our Lady and St Philip Howard. The superior is Fr. Graham Reeves, who is a Priest Associate of the Holy House.
The Cell of Our Lady and St Philip Howard meets on the FIRST Saturday of the month at 9.30am for a said Mass with hymns followed by refreshments at St Mary's, Barnham.
We invite former, current and future Walsingham pilgrims to attend!
