Virgin Mary Appears in Denver

Bishop Conley to lead Marian procession by Denver Catholic Register

Everyone is invited to join Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley as he leads a procession to honor Mary, the mother of Christ, through the streets of Denver on May 2. Carried in the procession will be the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

The celebration will begin with 3 p.m. Mass at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church on the Auraria campus, during which the statue will be crowned, followed by the procession east down Colfax Avenue to the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Those in the procession will pray the rosary and sing hymns.

“This will be an opportunity to express our Catholic faith in public and to draw many closer to God,” said Friar Servants of Mary Father Gabriel Weber, an organizer of the event. “And to pray for peace in the world as our Blessed Mother requested at Fatima.”
