Dear Fathers, Parish Director, Parish Life Coordinators, Lay Leaders, Business Administrators, Sisters, and others,
Attached (below this message) please find the Letter from Pope Francis inviting us all to join him in the Act of Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, the Solemnity of the Annunciation. Also attached is the prayer for the Act of Consecration. As you will note in the Holy Father’s letter, he is doing the Consecration in the context of the celebration of penance. In the email yesterday, it was noted that I will be doing the Act of Consecration in the context of the Mass, celebrating the Solemnity of the Annunciation. Again, in the email yesterday, I invited you to join in the Act of Consecration within the context of Holy Mass, a rosary for peace, or some other form of devotion or prayer as you feel able to plan at this short notice.
I will be celebrating Mass at the Cathedral at 11 a.m. Friday, March 25. So far, we have not received specific instructions as to when to do the Act of Consecration within the context of Mass. Therefore, I am planning on doing it after the prayer after communion just prior to the dismissal and final blessing. I invite you to do the same. My Mass at the Cathedral will be live streamed via the Cathedral’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CathedralOfChristTheKing/videos/ )
May our worldwide efforts of prayer produce peace.
