Stepping into the breach at Walsingham by Mgr Andrew Burnham
Friday 5th September 2014

Monsignor Andrew Burnham, Assitant to the Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, has written a piece for the Tablet Blogs in which he suggests that, with the withdrawal of the Marists from the running of the Catholic shrine at Walsingham, the Ordinariate might step into the breach. 

"Properly handled", he writes, "relationships between the two shrines, their pilgrims and visitors, should be enhanced by the relationship of both to the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. Members of the Ordinariate are Catholics, nearly all of whom learnt a great deal of what they understand about the Catholic faith from pilgrimage to the Anglican shrine".

Among the possible futures Mgr Burnham imagines are the Ordinariate providing staff for the Catholic shrine, as the Marist Fathers did; joint ventures by both shrines together; an enhanced Roman Catholic presence in the village; or an ecumenical venture on the site of the abbey ruins.
