In honour of Our Lady

This shrine in honour of Our Lady was a place of prayer last night, as people gathered for Mass and a short torchlight procession at St Thomas More's. The evening Mass and procession has now been held for a number of years on the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady. Last night's weather was not the finest, so rather than finishing at the Lourdes grotto in the gardens, the procession ended at this indoor shrine, where a decade of the Rosary was said. This celebration of the Immaculate Conception has grown in popularity over recent years, and will hopefully continue to do so.
