Tune in live to the Rededication
at St Chad's Cathedral.
Live Streaming now available at St Chad's Cathedral
The Catholic Church will rededicate England as Mary’s Dowry on Sunday 29 March - the Sunday following the feast of the Annunciation.
The original dedication of England to Mary was made by King Richard II in 1381 at Westminster Abbey.
The 2020 rededication was due to be held simultaneously in the Walsingham shrine and in all churches and cathedrals in England, but given the current coronavirus pandemic it will now be an individual event taking place in homes up and down the country, and via live streaming.
On Sunday 29th March, we will pray together The Rededication. This will take place throughout the country in our homes, uniting us in prayer.
We’re inviting you to join in. Archbishop Bernard Longley will celebrate this Mass at St Chad's Cathedral at 11am, concluding with the prayers of Rededication.
Live streaming of Masses at St Chad’s Cathedral will then continue as follows:

Monday to Friday – 12.15pm
Saturday and Sunday – 11am
Liturgies during Holy Week will also be live streamed. The principal ceremonies will be celebrated in the Cathedral by Archbishop Bernard:
Palm Sunday (Sun 5 April) – 11am
Daily Mass (Mon 6 and Tues 7 April) – 12.15pm
Mass of Holy Chrism (Wed 8 April) – 11.30am
Mass of the Last Supper (Thurs 9 April) – 7.30pm

Mgr Timothy Menezes, Dean of St Chad’s Cathedral, said:
“I’m absolutely delighted we now have a live streaming facility at St Chad’s Cathedral.
“Now more than ever we want people to be able to access Mass and to feel a part of the Church even when they cannot physically attend.
“So many priests have enabled their people to continue to belong to the Eucharistic parish community through live streaming. Now people can share that same sense of belonging to our Diocesan family."
