Official Shrine of St Augustine
St Augustine's Church in Ramsgate has been formally established as a shrine of "The Apostle of the English" by Archbishop Smith of Southwark. The shrine has been granted the appropriate canonical privileges and is designated as a place of pilgrimage. Here is a link to the full press release from the Catholic Communications network.
Congratulations to Fr Marcus Holden and the parish of Ramsgate who have been working hard to raise funds to restore Pugin's wonderful Church.
