Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
under the patronage of Saint John Henry Newman

In this section:


Welcome to the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Sheffield which offers Mass according to the Ordinariate Use. Everyone is welcome and all Catholics in communion with the Holy See are permitted to receive the Sacraments with us. 

While we are certainly untraditional in our structure we are traditional in our forms of worship.

Our custom is to use celebrations in accordance with the Anglican ethos which have been approved by the Holy See and maintains the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church.

We believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, through the Church he established is in accordance with the unity for which our Lord prayed. We discover the healing of Christ’s Church through our communion within the Catholic Church and it is our mission to continually call other Christians to begin that same healing and unity we have started to experience ourselves.

The Ordinariate Mass takes place in the Day Chapel in the Catholic Church of the Mother of God, Abbeydale Road,    S7 1DX every first and third Saturday. All Masses are Missa Cantata unless advertised otherwise. The next mass at the Day Chapel will take place on the 2nd December 2023 at 11.15am. Everyone is welcome. 

 Whenever possible, our celebrations will be a Missa Cantata. The Mass setting will be according to John Merbecke and the Propers are according the 'The English Gradual, Part II' edited by Francis Burgess. Copies are readily available on Amazon and Ebay,

The beauty of the Mass


Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast  away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility : that in the last day,  when he shall come again in His glorious Majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through Him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever.  Amen
