On the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, and two days after Mother’s Day, Archbishop Alexander Sample announced that he will consecrate the Archdiocese of Portland to the Blessed Mother under the title of the “Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima.” 

Inspired by Pope Francis, who consecrated the world to Our Lady of Fatima last October, the archbishop wishes to entrust anew the entire archdiocese to Mary’s maternal protection. 

The consecration will take place at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland Saturday, June 28, on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mass will begin at 2 p.m.

All people of good will are invited to join in the Mass and consecration. This consecration, along with a corresponding promotion of the First Saturday devotions, is part of a spiritual effort to help support marriages and families in the Archdiocese of Portland. 

The new, National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima, which was blessed last October by Pope Francis, will be present for the Mass and consecration.
