Immaculate Conception: Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Bishop of Helsinki, H. E. Msgr. Teemu Sippo S.C.I. will celebrate a Pontifical Mass in Saint Mary’s church, Helsinki, on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady, Dec. 8, 2012, and, at the end of the Mass, renew the consecration of the Diocese of Helsinki and all Finland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

This consecration was originally performed by the previous Bishop of Helsinki, Msgr. Józef Wróbel S.C.I. at the conclusion of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Diocese on Dec. 8, 2005.

The consecratory prayer will be prayed in all Catholic parishes in Finland on the same day as a Diocesan action under the Year of Faith, promulgated by Pope Benedict XVI.
