Pope Francis intends “to carry out a solemn Act of Consecration of humanity, and Russia and Ukraine in particular, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary” this Friday March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation. In a letter to all bishops, the Holy Father wrote, “this Act of Consecration is meant to be a gesture of the universal Church, which in this dramatic moment lifts up to God, through his Mother and ours, the cry of pain of all those who suffer and implore an end to the violence, and to entrust the future of our human family to the Queen of Peace.”
Pope Francis has asked the faithful around the world to join him in this Act.
After the 11:30 a.m. Mass at St. Gertrude Church on Friday, March 25, the congregation will recite the Prayer of Consecration together. We invite you to join us for this Mass and in raising “a heartfelt and choral plea to Mary our Mother.”
If you are unable to attend the 11:30 a.m. Mass or pray with us, please recite the Prayer of Consecration on your own sometime during the day.
