Bishop Mark Davies to Consecrate his Diocese of Shrewsbury to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Bishop of Shrewsbury will consecrate his diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Sunday 13th October.

Bishop Mark Davies’s act of consecration will mirror Pope Francis’s, the Pope will consecrate the world to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart on Sunday.

Bishop Davies said: “I see this act of entrustment to Mary’s Immaculate Heart as an antidote to the rapid process of secularisation and de-Christianisation in societies like our own.

“It points to the often overlooked priority in the leadership of Pope Francis which constantly calls for our interior conversion, a change at heart.”

Bishop Davies will say the prayer consecrating the Diocese of Shrewsbury to Mary’s Immaculate Heart following 10:45am Mass at Shrewsbury cathedral.

Bishop Davies said: “Mary is the model of a life totally consecrated to God, her pure heart (Mt.5:8) completely open to the call and grace of God.
