“In entrusting ourselves to Mary’s maternal care and protection, we benefit from her intercession, joining our feeble efforts to her powerful prayers and her closeness to Jesus”

Canada’s bishops will mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation re-consecrating the nation to Mary on Canada Day.

The re-consecration will take place 70 years after Canada was first consecrated to Mary at a huge Marian Congress in Ottawa in 1947. In dioceses across Canada, bishops will consecrate their individual diocese or eparchy,

Join Archbishop Miller for a special Mass on Sunday, July 2 at 11am at Holy Rosary Cathedral as we celebrate and pray the national Prayer for the Consecration of Canada. The faithful can also make the consecration in parishes across the Archdiocese.

Parishes can download the following prayer here.


Prayer for the Consecration of Canada to Our Lady

May the Cross of your Son, planted on Canadian soil and in Canadian hearts, be known as the Tree of Life, whose fruit is visible and available to all in the garden of this world.

Mary our Mother, we place our country Canada in the sanctuary of your Holy Heart for we know that there we will find Jesus, who lives and reigns with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
