Our Lady of Consolation Of West Grinstead

Devotion to Our Lady has been maintained in the West Grinstead area since recusant times and when Catholics were once again allowed to worship freely,  a church was joyfully built here to replace the secret chapel used within the priest's house.

It was decided to dedicate it to Our Lady of Consolation, affiliated to the shrine of the same title in Turin, Italy, and a painting modeled on the one in Turin was commissioned.

                                                   There is also a statue in the fine church

Information about the RC Shrine of
 Our Lady of Consolation can be found here.
