Welcome to the website for the Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Grace, known locally as ‘The Lady Chapel’. This holy and historic chapel is the Diocesan Shrine for the Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough.
Located on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and overlooking the scenic village of Osmotherley, the site affords panoramic view over Teesside, Bilsdale and, on a clear day, as far as the Pennine hills.
Built by Carthusian monks from nearby Mount Grace Priory in the 15th century, it was until recently cared for, on behalf of the Diocese of Middlesbrough, by Benedictine monks from Ampleforth Abbey. It is now under the care of Saint Mary’s Cathedral, Middlesbrough, by Mgr Gerard Robinson and Fr James Benfield.
On this site you will find information relating to: the Shrine’s history and its connection with Queen Katherine of Aragon; details of weekly Mass times and pilgrimages; how to request prayers at the Shrine and how to plan a visit or book a wedding. All are welcome.
Our Lady of Mount Grace – pray for us!
