WATCH: Rededication of Archdiocese to Our Lady

Join in prayer with Archbishop Cushley as he rededicates the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the Feast of Our Lady of Fátima.

TODAY: Rededication of Archdiocese to Immaculate Heart of Mary

Archbishop Cushley will rededicate the Archdiocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary today at 12:30pm.

It comes on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, and three years after he dedicated the Archdiocese while on pilgrimage to the Portuguese holy site.

He said: "On the centenary of those apparitions I was privileged to be able to take a pilgrimage of the diocese to Fatima to pray there again and to dedicate the diocese to the immaculate heart of Mary.

"Three years after that and we find ourselves in the midst of an international crisis. And so it seemed helpful to dedicate ourselves once more to Our Blessed Lady and to the message from Fatima."

Watch the rededication at 12:30 on our Facebook or on Archbishop Cushley's Twitter.

Here's a video of the consecration from 2017.

Here is the Prayer of consecration to Our Lady of Fatima

O Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, Queen of heaven and earth, Refuge of sinners, we consecrate ourselves to your Immaculate heart. To you we consecrate again our hearts and souls, our families and all that we have. 

And in order that this consecration may be truly effective and lasting, we renew today the promises of our baptism and confirmation; and we undertake to live as good Christians, faithful to God, to the Church and to our Holy Father the Pope. 

We desire to pray the rosary, partake in the holy Eucharist, to attach special importance to the first Saturday of the month, and to work for the conversion of sinners.

Furthermore, we promise, O most holy Virgin, that we will zealously spread devotion to you, so that through our consecration to your Immaculate Heart and through your own intercession, the coming of the Kingdom of Christ in the world may be hastened.  Amen.
