`The re-dedication in 2020, unlike the dedication of King Richard II in 1381, will not be the gift of the country of England, but the personal gift
of the faith of the people of England to the Mother of God, to seek her help in building a strong spiritual foundation for the New Evangelisation.
We call upon Our Lady to guide and protect our country in the years to come, that our people may work together to face the challenges of our times, as we
work to build a Common Good.
Let us embrace the truth of the Gospel, that ever inspires us to create a culture that respects life, embraces the great diversity of our people, and inspires all to a
greatness of heart that will serve our community, seeking the good of others before ourselves, especially the poor and the marginalised of our world.`
Mgr John Armitage
