Sister Jane Louise in Walsingham asks for our help

From Sister Jane Louise

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin” (Zech. 4:10, NLT).

Sisters of Our Lady of Reconciliation - AusschnittSister 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.

    Dear Sister Jane Louise,
    Your name is in the Catholic Herald as one of the Catholic Women of the Year. It will be good to meet you as I am also nominated.
    I accepted it in order to bring some publicity and recognition to our Association. The Natural Family Natural Planning Association .We are a struggling group with no backing or support. I devised an online course to train teachers but so far we are training people all over the world with very few from UK.
    Myself, I am a retired GP, married for 52 years with 5 children and 8 grandchildren, 20 years to 18 months.
    I recently came to Walsingham with our Salford Diocesan pilgrimage not having been since the Carmelites left Langham. Sister Margaret Needham was a Manchester convert to Catholicism. She used to visit the Hidden Gem church on her way to school and was captured.
    My email is It would be lovely to hear from you. I am trying to find Caroline Farey and Catherine MacMillan, the other two nominees.
    Kind regards
    Olive Duddy
