Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church

On February 11, 2018, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments inscribed a new obligatory Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, into the General Roman Calendar. This memorial is celebrated every year on the Monday after Pentecost.

Pope Francis declared that on Saturday, March 3, 2018, that this memorial will be celebrated beginning this year. The Memorial will be observed annually and has been added to the General Roman Calendar, the Roman Missal, and the Liturgy of the Hours. This memorial invites us to the deep and profound relationship of the Blessed Virgin Mary with the Holy Spirit and the Church through her motherhood.

Here at Holy Rosary we will celebrate this memorial on Monday, May 21, 2018 in a special way at the 5:15 Mass. Please, join us!
