Every Catholic diocese and Eastern-rite eparchy in Pennsylvania will be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary this year, as the Catholic bishops of the commonwealth approved at their provincial meeting May 1.
The dedication observes of the 100th anniversary of the apparition of the Blessed Mother at Fatima.
All the bishops of Pennsylvania will mark the dedication with a special Mass at 12 noon on Wednesday, Sept. 27 in St. Patrick Cathedral in Harrisburg.
The dedication will also be celebrated in each of the state’s eight dioceses and two eparchies on the weekend of Oct. 14-15. Details on those celebrations will be forthcoming.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
