Administrative history

In 1977, the Guild of Our Lady of Ipswich (later renamed Meryemana) was founded with two aims – to pray for Christian Unity and to plan and achieve the re-establishment of the shrine of Our Lady of Grace at Ipswich.

On 10th September 2002, the Statue of Our Lady of Grace was blessed and installed by the Bishop of Richborough in the church of St Mary at the Elms, Ipswich. The statue, a replica of the statue at Nettuno, was carved by local artist Robert Mellamphy. The ceremony took place in the presence of the Bishop of St Edmundsbury & Ipswich, the Roman Catholic Dean of Ipswich (Monsignor Peter Leeming), Father Andrew Philips of the Orthodox Church and the Reverend Elizabeth Bellamy of the Methodist Church.
