From Sister Jane Louise
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin” (Zech. 4:10, NLT).
Sister Wendy Renate and I, known as The Sisters of Our Lady of Reconciliation, have our roots firmly in place at the Basilica of the Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady, Walsingham. We are on the eve of our fourth pilgrimage season as Catholics and enjoying the excitement of all the new beginnings happening here with the development fund, through which many people are showing their love for Our Lady and the National Shrine with great generosity.
We have our own new developments, as we have an enthusiastic Aspirant, Heather, who even after eighteen months, still wishes to join us. We would like to be able to house her and have an Oratory to house Jesus.
Although we live in a lovely cottage, it is now too small, so we have decided to try and do something about it. We would like to raise £500.000 in order to stand a chance of buying a property in Walsingham.
We see properties come and go, to our frustration. With your help and prayers we could do this. In July we are planning a sponsored walk. If you would like to join us, we would enjoy your company, even if you cannot get to Walsingham to do that.
Sponsor forms will be available soon, with details of how to donate. If you are at the Ordinariate Pilgrimage to Walsingham this year, we will see you there!
Thank you for reading this.
