Rosary on the Coast in the Crypt

In union with nearly 400 Rosary Sites lining the coastline of England, Scotland and Wales, Dom Leo and Dom Michael recently joined with many Parishioners, and others, to pray for life, faith and peace in the British Isles.

The “Rosary on the Coast” lay movement has attracted unprecedented numbers of Catholics, with countless thousands praying the Rosary and other prayers at 3 pm on Sunday 29 April.

With the Relics of so many Martyrs and Saints being in the custody of Downside, the Litany invoking the Saints of the British Isles, was especially moving. The afternoon concluded with those attending at the Crypt forming a human chain around the outside of the Chapel, and loudly reciting the Our Father!
