MONTH OF MAY, MONTH OF MARYMay is the month of Mary. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: "All generations will call me blessed": "The Church's devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is intrinsic to Christian worship.  The Church rightly honors "the Blessed Virgin with special devotion...The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an "epitome of the whole Gospel," express this devotion to the Virgin Mary." (CCC 971)

This month of May, Father Rector will publicly pray the Holy Rosary daily and it will be livestream via our parish Facebook page. The poster above has the schedule.

The Virgin Mary appeared to three children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. She appeared one time each month starting on May 13 and ending on October 13. The three children were named Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta. During her apparitions, Our Lady gave them messages for mankind and secrets about the future.

To honor and celebrate this special event in the life of the Church, the Portuguese-Canadian Community in the City of Prince George has requested that the Mass on the Sixth Sunday of Easter, May 22, 2022, 11:00 AM at Sacred Heart Cathedral be a celebration that includes a special devotion to Our Lady. And so, following the 11:00 AM Mass that day, there will be a procession of the image of Our Lady within the Church and school grounds.

In preparation, we are looking for three children, ages 8-10 (one boy and two girls) to dress-up like the three shepherd children (Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta). The costumes will be provided. If your child is interested to do this role, please coordinate with Fr. Rector by contacting the parish office.

We are also in need of men who will volunteer to carry the image of Our Lady during the procession. If you think you can do the task of carrying the image of Our Lady, please have your name on the list by contacting the parish office. Attention all men in the parish to really consider being part of this.
