Dowry of Mary Home Project
Dowry of Mary
March is a historic month for the Catholic Church in England as there will be a Re-dedication of England as the ‘Dowry of Mary’ on Sunday 29th March 2020.
The first dedication was made by Richard II in Westminster Abbey in 1381 as he sought protection in the face of great political turmoil. The Re-dedication is both a personal promise of the people of our country, and a renewal of the entrustment vows made by King Richard II in 1381 when he promised this land and the people as the dowry of Mary.
On this day, we accept God’s gift of His Mother, the cause of our joy, as she leads us to Christ through her example as the First Disciple and she invited us to “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5).
By taking up this wonderful opportunity of dedication, our pupils can be part of the renewal of the nation. This will bring all of us closer to the will of God through Mary.
Below you will find a PowerPoint about the Re-dedication and the Angelus. There are also some ideas on how you can mark this event at home.
