Re-consecration of the United States to the Care of Our Blessed Mother- May 1st at Noon
May 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Re-consecration of the United States to the Care of Our Blessed Mother
Archbishop Etienne will lead a brief liturgy with the prayer of re-consecration of the United States to the Care of Our Blessed Mother. It will be livestreamed from the Archdiocese Facebook page on Friday, May 1 at noon. The Archbishop is inviting families, students and staffs to join the service from their homes.
As the world continues to face the ongoing effects of the global pandemic of the coronavirus, Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles and president of the USCCB has announced that the U.S. bishops will join the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops on May 1 in renewing the consecrations of the two nations to the care of our Blessed Mother. Through a collective dedication or entrustment of a nation to Mary, an act of consecration is meant to be a reminder to the faithful of the Blessed Mother’s witness to the Gospel and to ask for her effective intercession before her Son on behalf of those in need.
