As was announced at the Chrism Masses, our Holy Father, Pope Francis has promulgated the Decree that the celebration of the memorial of “Our Lady Mother of the Church – Mater Ecclesiae” be incorporated into the Liturgical Calendar of the Universal Church.
As Patroness of our Archdiocese, Our Lady, Mother of the Church would be celebrated as a FEAST throughout the Archdiocese on the Saturday before the Pentecost. This comes up on Saturday, 19th May, 2018. All Parishes in the Archdiocese are therefore expected to observe this liturgical celebration as a Feast in the Archdiocese.
All faithful are strongly encouraged to make a visit in the form of a Pilgrimage to the Holy Cross Cathedral, Lagos, or Mater Ecclesiae Monastery, Sangotedo, on this special day so as to obtain the Plenary Indulgence granted.
