The Shrine of Our Lady of Caversham

The Shrine of Our Lady of Caversham is within the Church of Our Lady and St Anne.  The Shrine has a fascinating history, which may be explored by clicking here.

The Church of Our Lady and St Anne welcomes, and encourages, pilgrimages to the Shrine.  The church is open most days if you would like to come on your own but more detail on how to organise a visit from a group can be discovered by clicking here. We may be able to arrange for somebody to talk to your group about the shrine.

In 2017 the shrine was lovingly restored as a site of pilgrimage that reflects its local history.  Details of how this came about can be found by clicking here.

Prayer to Our Lady of Caversham
All holy Mother of God,
who in the ages of faith did receive in this holy place
the veneration of our fathers,
pray for us that we may grow in God’s grace,
and may be led to the knowledge and love of your
Divine Son
who, with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns, world without end. Amen
