Canadian and American Bishops to Ask Mary for Her Intercession on COVID-19

Posted : Apr-29-2020


​In this time of pandemic, bishops in Canada and the United States will consecrate both countries to Mary, the mother of the Church, on Friday, May 1.

Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, will participate in the consecration during his 7:30 a.m. Mass on Friday, which you can watch live on the St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica website (later on-demand viewing is also available).

In this time of desolation and worry, we will join together in prayer and ask Mary for her intercession.

We hope you can add your prayers to our call to Mary. The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has created a document to help you participate in the prayers from home.
