All are invited to the October First Friday all-night adoration vigil of the Two Hearts, October 6–7.
This will be a special First Friday at Mater Dei, because the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue or Our Lady of Fatima will accompany us through the night.
She is scheduled to arrive not long after Sacred Heart Devotions begin, and she will stay with us until around 6:30 on Saturday morning.
Also please note that the Friday evening Mass will begin at 8:30 p.m instead of the usual time of 8:00.
In keeping with the tradition begun by the Sisters of the Carmelite Monastery in Dallas, the purpose of this vigil is to beg God’s mercy and Our Lady’s intercession for America.
[Please note that this vigil does NOT replace Friday Afternoon Adoration.]
Please sign up for Eucharistic Adoration on the adoration sign-up calendar to help ensure that we have adequate attendance for Our Lord at all hours of the vigil.
