want all members of the Society [of OLW] to start prayers and request
that the Bishop may grant us the privilege of having Holy Mass at
the [soon to be built] Shrine - and this is not beyond possibility
- as the outer building will serve as the Chapel for the Sisters.
OLM Winter/Spring Number 1938
The [Blessed Sacrament] Chapel is being filled up, it will be very beautiful
and occupies the most conspicuous place in the building after the High
Altar. ... It is hoped that in this Chapel the Sisters will sing their
Office and so free the Holy House.
the Sisters' Chapel was created in 1938 as the Chapel of the Sacred Heart,
upstairs, in a room over the Sacristy and which is now called the Top
Sacristy, behind the organ loft. In 1949 it was mentioned in OLM
as needing endowment.
OLM Spring Number 1952
The upper room, built originally for a sacristy and
until recently used as the Sisters’ chapel, is now free.

OLM Winter-Spring Number 1957
February 9th the Lord Bishop of the Diocese visited Walsingham again,
this time to dedicate the Convent Chapel which had just been completed.
It was a very happy day for the Sisters and their numerous friends.
The Bishop expressed surprise and pleasure at the speed with which
the building had been put up, and reminded the congregation of his
last visit when he installed the Reverend Mother. The chapel is quite
large, with a beautiful stone High Altar in front of an apse. There
is a small narthex at the west end.
Sisters' first chapel, before the Holy House was built: from
OLM Summer Number 1928
are building a little oratory at the Hospice [Stella Maris] for
the Sisters - the Chapel of Our Lady of Pity.
The foundations are being laid and we hope to get the walls and
roof on before the autumn sets in. The total interior measurements
of the Chapel and its porch will be the same as the Holy House
at Loreto, while the actual oratory will reproduce the exact dimensions
of the Holy House or Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. Would you
like to have a finger in this work? We feel sure all the pilgrims
would like to express their gratitude to the Sisters for all they
have done and do for us when on pilgrimage - and here is an opportunity.
The building materials cost 3/- [15p] a load. Then there will
be the necessary fittings.
