All are invited to participate in the Five First Saturdays devotion, a beautiful practice requested by our Blessed Mother in Fatima. This devotion holds profound significance in our faith and offers us a unique opportunity to draw closer to the heart of Our Lady. Join us Saturday, June 3rd at 8:00 AM.
As Our Lady of Fatima appeared to the three shepherd children in 1917, she shared with them a powerful message of love, repentance, and hope. Among her requests was the Five First Saturdays devotion, a way for us to console her Immaculate Heart and grow in holiness.
On the first Saturday of every month, for five consecutive months, we are called to come together as a community to engage in the following spiritual practices:
Prayer: Join us in the church for a dedicated time of prayer, where we will lift our hearts and voices to God, seeking His mercy, guidance, and intercession through the loving hands of Our Blessed Mother.
Confession: Experience the profound grace of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Take this opportunity to reconcile with God, receive His forgiveness, and purify your soul, so that you may approach the Eucharist with a clean and open heart.
Mass: Participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, where we encounter our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Receive Him with reverence and gratitude, as we offer our worship, thanksgiving, and petitions for the intentions of Our Lady.
This sacred devotion provides us with a path to spiritual renewal and a deeper connection to Our Lady's heart, allowing her to guide and protect us on our journey of faith. By embracing this practice, we respond to her call for repentance, conversion, and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart in our lives.
We encourage all parishioners, young and old, to embrace this opportunity for spiritual growth and devotion. Let us come together as a united community, supporting and praying for one another, as we strive to console and honor the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother.
The first Saturday of the upcoming month is fast approaching, so please mark your calendars and join us for the Five First Saturdays devotion. We are confident that through our sincere participation, we will experience the grace and blessings bestowed upon us by Our Lady.
