Each year, the Church seeks the special intercession of the Mother of God during the month of May. This year, we seek the assistance of Mary even more earnestly as we face the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, May 1, the bishops of the United States will renew the consecration of our nation to Our Lady under the title Mary, Mother of the Church.
Archbishop Jose Gomez, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, will lead a brief liturgy with the prayer of reconsecration on May 1 at 2 p.m. CDT. View the livestream of this event and download worship aids in English and Spanish at http://www.usccb.org/consecration.
