Archbishop Chaput Announces Dedication of the Archdiocese to the Blessed Mother to Observe 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions

 

At the request of Archbishop Chaput, I am sharing the attached letter announcing that the Bishops of Pennsylvania recently voted to approve a recommendation that each Catholic diocese and eparchy in the Commonwealth be dedicated to the Blessed Mother.

 

This action was prompted by the intention for the dioceses and eparchies to observe the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Mother at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917.

 

The letter contains additional information regarding initial activities. More details will follow later.

 

Sincerely in Christ,

Rev. Msgr. Daniel J. Sullivan

Vicar for Clergy
