Ordinary endorses Ocean to Ocean Pilgrimage
Wednesday 10th October 2012

Monsignor Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, has endorsed the From Ocean to Ocean pilgrimage of the replica image of Our Lady of Częstochowa at a 'crucial time' for the defence of family and the dignity of human life.

The pilgrimage, which reaches the UK on Monday 5 November 2012, will pass through Dover, Canterbury, London, Walsingham, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Carfin and Glasgow, en route to Ireland.

The pilgrimage aims to deepen awareness of the importance of Catholic teaching on the family and the dignity of all human beings from the moment of conception until natural death, and is travelling from Kazakhstan, through Europe, to Portugal at the end of the year.

Giving his encouragement to the pilgrimage, Mgr Newton said:

"I am pleased to welcome the visit of the replica of the famous icon of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa as part of the 'Ocean to Ocean' pilgrimage in defence of life and the family. The visits of the relics of St Therese and St John Vianney have shown how significant such events are in fostering prayer and devotion. The pilgrimage comes to Great Britain at a crucial time with so much threatening human life and the family so I will be encouraging people to venerate the icon and to entrust the protection of life and the family to Our Lady's intercession".

Members of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham are being encouraged to support the initiative, and to increase their own awareness of these important matters through the study and consideration of the Church's documents, not least the Year of Faith begins.
