First Saturday Devotions
First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Beginning on Saturday morning November 2nd from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m, and every First Saturday thereafter, St. Luke’s will host a devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In 1917, during her miraculous appearance to three children in Fatima, Our Lady announced that “… God wishes to establish in the world a devotion to My Immaculate Heart …” To honor God’s wishes, Our Blessed Mother asked us to devote every First Saturday in reparation to offenses and blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The devotion includes Mass, Adoration, Rosary, Confession, and a special 15 minute meditation “… to keep me company …” Furthermore, if a devotee attends five consecutive months, Our Lady promises “… to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation …” Please join us in honoring this special request from Our Mother Mary. The day will begin with Mass at 8:00 am. Refreshments will be served following the devotion.
