Walsingham Cell

There is a Cell of The Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham at St John's church.  

Local Cells of the Society of Our Lady of Walsingham offer pilgrims to Walsingham an opportunity to strengthen and renew the spiritual benefits of their pilgrimage. 

Local Cells observe the feasts of the Annunciation of the Lord (March 25) and the Assumption of Our Lady (August 15), together with the remembrance of the translation of the image of Our Lady of Walsingham from the Parish Church to the present Shrine in 1931 (October 15). On these days in the Cell will pray for the work of the Shrine, and to give thanks for its witness to the mystery of the incarnation.

Our Cell goes on pilgrimage to Walsingham twice a year and meets frequently to offer Mass for the Shrine and for the objects of the Society:

  • To honour Mary, the Mother of God and to deepen faith in the incarnation of Our Lord.

  • To promote devotion to Our Lady and pilgrimage to Walsingham.

  • To further, with the aid of Our Lady's prayers, the conversion of the nations and the re-union of Christendom.

  • To seek holiness of life through prayer, the scriptures and the sacraments.
