Re-Dedication of England to Mary

It has been agreed with the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales that the rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary will take place this year.

We call upon Our Lady to guide and protect our country in the years to come, that we may work together to build a common good, as we seek to embrace the truth of the Gospel. The rededication seeks to inspire us to create a culture that respects life, embraces the great diversity of our people, and inspires all to a greatness of heart that will serve our community, seeking the good of others before ourselves, especially the poor and the marginalised of our world

The Archbishop has recorded a video message to mark the re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Mary.

The message can be found by following the link


Canon Christopher  invites parishioners to be united with him in prayer at this time.

The following dedication prayer or similar words may be used:

I, ……….., a repentant sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism.  I renounce Satan and resolve to follow Jesus Christ ever more closely than before.

Mary, I give you my heart.  Please set it on fire with love for Jesus.  Make it always attentive to his burning thirst for love and for souls.  Keep my heart in your most pure Heart that I may love Jesus and the members of his Body with your own perfect love.

Mary, I entrust myself totally to you:  my body and soul, my goods, bother interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions.  Please make of me, of all that I am and have, whatever most pleases you.  Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for bringing the greatest possible glory to God.  If I fall, please lead me back to Jesus. Wash me in the blood and water that flow from his pierced side, and help me never to lose my trust in this fountain of love and mercy.

With you, O Immaculate Mother – you who always do the will of God – I unite myself to the perfect consecration of Jesus as he offers himself in the Spirit to the Father for the life of the world. Amen.
