Tour of the Church (Part 15)


The shrine of Our Lady is a significant focal point in the church. The statues and icons are like our family photograph album, and those who are dearest to us are given most prominence. It was Mary who said “yes” to God and allowed the Son of God to take human flesh. Here we come to ask the prayers of the Mother of Jesus. For further information about the statue itself, and it’s origins, please follow this link to the History of the Parish.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death.
