Save the date! Honor our Blessed Lady and join the crowds in this spectacular 3-mile pilgrimage through the city. Here is your opportunity to give public witness our Lord, our Faith, our Lady! Event concludes with Solemn Mass at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament and May Crowning ceremony.
If you are Catholic and live on the West Coast, join the crowds for this EPIC 6th Annual Marian Procession, Mass and Crowning! The glorious statue of the Blessed Virgin of Fatima is led out from East Lawn Cemetery to the haunting sounds of drums and bagpipes. The statue is flanked by Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree Honor Guard. Boulevards and streets are closed-down by the Sacramento Police Department as the crowds make their 3.5-mile pilgrimage through the city, praying Our Lady’s Holy Rosary which is broadcast by Immaculate Heart Radio for the event.
You will walk through East Sacramento, Midtown and Downtown, passing in front of the State Capitol, then to Cathedral Plaza. Enter the majestic Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, where you will participate in the breathtaking Solemn High Mass in the traditional Latin form: the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite! Mass is sung by the famous accomplished Choir and Choristers of St. Stephen the First Martyr Parish, and served by the skilled members of St. Stephen the First Martyr Parish Altar Guild. Then immediately following Mass is May Crowning of our Blessed Lady.
