Welcome to the Church and Shrine of
Our Lady of Walsingham


Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Church.

The parish of Our Lady of Walsingham, established in 1984 under the Pastoral Provision of Pope John Paul II, was the first Catholic parish in the United States to be dedicated to Our Lady under this title and one of several personal parishes in the country. Our Lady of Walsingham was named Principal Church of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter on January 1, 2012.

Our Order of Mass is at once distinctly and traditionally Anglican in character, content, and structure, while also being clearly and recognizably a form of the Roman Rite.

All are welcome to worship with us, as well as to visit the outdoor Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham.

We offer thanks for the Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum coetibus, and for the establishment of the Ordinariate here in the United States. We rejoice in the generous invitation of Pope Benedict XVI to secure a permanent place for our Anglican Patrimony and in the continuing support of Pope Francis in the mission of reconciling others to Holy Mother Church.

Faithfully in Christ and Mary,

Fr. Charles Hough IV
