This year marks the start of ‘Behold, Your Mother’ when the people of England are being invited to dedicate themselves to Mary, Mother of Jesus, in 2020.

Clifton Cathedral will be hosting a Triduum of prayer from  20 – 22 February when they will receive the statue of Mary from the Slipper Chapel at the Catholic National Shrine in Walsingham as part of the preparation for the year of dedication.

In addition, parishes, schools and other institutions are being encouraged to get involved  in a variety of ways. One way is to  hold a ‘Behold’ event on 29 March when the official dedication will take place. Another opportunity involves participating in 33 days of  simple prayer commencing on the 21 February and finishing on 25 March.
