Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be entrusted to the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary in honor of the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. Archbishop Charles J. Chaput will consecrate the archdiocese to Our Lady of Fatima at the 11 a.m. Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
Clergy, religious and faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia are invited to participate in this momentous occasion in the life of the archdiocese. It is a decisive moment in which we turn our local church, our parishes, schools, institutions, ourselves and our families over to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
All are encouraged to prepare spiritually for this consecration by participating in the traditional practice of a 33-day preparation process using one of these resources:
- St. Louis de Montfort’s “Preparation for Total Consecration”
- Father Michael Gaitley’s “33 Days to Morning Glory” preparation process
To prepare for 33 days prior to our archdiocesan consecration date of Oct. 15, preparation would begin on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
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.
