Mother of God, Norwich
I didn't bother trying to see inside. When I visited St George, I found the church there locked, and was told very firmly at the presbytery that I couldn't go inside. When I wrote to the Catholic Herald about my experience there, I was rather surprised to receive a large number of e-mails on the subject, all supportive. Technically speaking of course, as Our Lady is a chapel of ease, it does not have the liturgical imperative to be accessible that St George has. But if it was open, and people were able to pray in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, it would be a valuable devotional centre in a rather soulless part of Norwich; and so this must be seen as, yet again, another opportunity missed.
