Saturday, 1 May 2021: 5pm and 6pm (UK time)
Pope Francis has invited Catholics and 30 Marian Shrines around the world, including the Shrine at Walsingham, to dedicate the month of May to a marathon of prayer for an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham has been selected to start the month of prayer on Saturday 1 May.
Shrine Rector Mgr Philip Moger and the Shrine Team will be praying.
The event will start with an address of the Holy Father and liturgical programme from Rome at 5pm UK time which will be broadcast through Walsingham’s livestream.
The recitation of the rosary will be live streamed from Walsingham to the Vatican Television Centre so that Pope Francis can join in live.
The Walsingham Intention is for those who have died from the COVID-19 pandemic across the world.
The broadcast will be supported by EWTN and can be viewed on these platforms:
