On Friday, May 1 at 2pm, Bishop Jaime Soto asked the faithful to join him via livestream as he consecrated the Diocese of Sacramento to Mary, Mother of the Church. The statue of Mary and Jesus in the courtyard of the Diocese of Sacramento Pastoral Center was also crowned.
A worship aid is available in order to help families conduct the consecration in their own homes:
This prayer service followed the 12 noon re-consecration of our nation under the same title by Archbishop José Gomez, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and archbishop of Los Angeles, which was streamed at www.lacatholics.org/consecration and www.facebook.com/usccb.
Bishop Soto will also offer Mass and the Renewal of Consecration to Mary at St. Clare Church on Wednesday, May 13 at 6pm. More details to come.
