The rain did not keep people away from the Annual Healing and Renewal Day at Walsingham on Monday. Several hundred gathered under cover for the healing mass. The preacher was Sister Meg Evening. The afternoon services were held in the Shrine Church. Canon James Rosenthal, a non-stipendiary minister of the Wantsum group of parishes in the diocese of Canterbury, reported that the congregation overflowed into all the small chapels, as the rain, dubbed "showers of blessing" by Bishop Lindsay Urwin, OGS, Shrine Administrator, kept falling.
