Consecration of the Archdiocese to Our Lady of Fatima
Archbishop Aquila has announced that he will consecrate the archdiocese to Our Lady of Fatima, entrusting to her Immaculate Heart the entire Archdiocese of Denver and all who live here. This will take place on October 13th. The parishes of Sacred Heart and Holy Family will be consecrated in conjunction with the Archdiocese. Those who wish to make their personal consecration to Jesus through Mary at that time should begin preparation on September 10th using the book 33 Days to Morning Glory or other approved consecration preparation books.
The date was chosen to honor the 100th anniversary of Fatima and will promote unity throughout the archdiocese. It will be on the anniversary of the miracle of the sun witnessed by tens of thousands who came to believe and trust in the truth of the miracle of Fatima. We need to take this time to prepare our own hearts to have [them] formed by Mary and Jesus.
100th Anniversary of Fatima
We have been blessed in our Archdiocese to have Our
Lady of Fatima parish designated by Pope Francis as a
pilgrimage site during this 100th Anniversary of Fatima.
Between October 23, 2016 and October 24, 2017, the
faithful may visit the parish and receive a plenary indulgence
under the conditions explained in the Denver
