In 1381, England was dedicated to Mary by King Richard II and was set apart for her among the nations. This year, Catholics of England, and anyone else who wishes, are called to make a personal dedication to Mary, taking up her example as the Christ’s first disciple. A formal public announcement by the Bishops of England and Wales was made on 1 Jan. On 21 Feb you will be invited to begin a personal 33-day consecration to Jesus through Mary following the method of St Louis de Montfort (free books will be made available) ending on 25 March, Feast of the Annunciation. A 3-day triduum of the litany of Saints & Martyrs of England & the Rosary from 26 to 28 March culminates on 29 March with a personal re-dedication in Westminster, Walsingham, every Cathedral, and every participating parish, including St Peter’s Church, Scarborough.
