Welcome to The Shrine of Our Lady of Glastonbury
A shrine is traditionally a place of pilgrimage and reminds us, in an earthly way, of our spiritual journey of faith.
Through baptism we embark on a road that is sometimes smooth, sometimes rough, but we do not journey alone.
As Christians we have our eyes firmly fixed upon the Kingdom of God as revealed to us in Scripture and Tradition by Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The message of Our Lady, His Mother, is a simple one. In John 2:5 she points to her Son and says, "Do whatever He tells you". And so it is in this shrine that we worship God and give honour to the Theotokos, the God-Bearer. She is a prototype of the Church in that she gives us an example of discipleship unparalleled in the history of salvation. She is humble and courageous, obedient and strong, maternal and virginal, constantly directing us towards her Son.
