  • Three Catholic Rites in One Day

    Tomorrow (Sat 27th June) a unique event takes place in the pilgrimage centre of Walsingham in Norfolk, England (see below). On the same day three masses will be said in three different Catholic Rites in the Reconciliation Chapel.

    At 12.00 (noon) there will be the usual Mass in the Roman (or Latin) Rite.
    Then at 1.30 pm some Lebanese pilgrims will celebrate Mass in the Melkite Rite, in Arabic.
    Then at 3.00 pm pilgrims from the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham (see below) will celebrate Mass in the Ordinariate Rite.

    Walsingham.
    Walsingham is the home of the National Shrine to Our Lady in England. It has been a place of pilgrimage since the 11th century. In the Middle Ages it was one of the four great international places of Pilgrimage in the world The others being Jerusalem, Rome and Santiago de Compostella.

    At the Reformation Henry VIII destroyed the shrine and stopped pilgrimages, but in recent years pilgrimages have been re-established.

    The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
    These are ex-Anglicans in England who, in 2011, came over to the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict XVI allowed them to bring over some of their “patrimony” – their style of worship – to become a Personal Ordinariate of the Pope. They do not come under the hierarchy of the (Roman Rite) Bishops of England and Wales. (Link)

    In 2012 a similar group of Anglicans formed the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter in the USA, though the group first came into the Catholic Church in 1984 (Error 404). Their main church is called Our Lady of Walsingham .

      No,- it's a 5-6 hour drive from where I live. It would be interesting to experience some of the different Rites though.
