Consecration of the Archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary


Archbishop Prendergast will renew the consecration of the Archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, at a Mass to be held at 10 a.m. on Canada Day, July 1st, at Notre Dame Cathedral. All are invited to attend.

This event is tied to a number of historic events : Canada’s 150th, the 170th anniversary of the foundation of the diocese/archdiocese of Bytown-Ottawa on June 25, 1847; the 70th of the Marian Congress held in 1947 to mark the centennial of the diocese/archdiocese and, with prayers for peace, the 100th of the Fatima apparitions.   Canada was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1947 at the Marian Congress.
