Catholic prelates will reconsecrate the nation to the care of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on June 12.


The national consecration reaffirms the bishops’ previous consecrations of the country to the Blessed Mother.

It was in January 2014 when the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of tye Philippines (CBCP) approved that the consecration to Mary’s Immaculate Heart is renewed every year on her feast day until this year that marks the 500 Years of Christianity.

CBCP News said like the recent consecration to St. Joseph, the upcoming national consecration will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, CBCP President, from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m.

The Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will then follow at 10 a.m. in the different cathedrals and churches led by the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary General, said that after the post communion prayer, a diocesan or parish consecration could also be made especially for those that could not follow the national consecration.

All the dioceses and churches will be linked up to the event on Facebook, radio and television.
