The Mass and consecration, celebrated on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, were offered particularly for the strengthening of marriage and family life.
“Marriage and family life are in a real crisis. We make this consecration to her to watch over our families and marriages. Families need Our Lady’s love and protection,” the archbishop said during the homily, according to the Catholic Sentinel.
Todd Cooper, special assistant to Archbishop Sample, told CNA that Pope Francis’ consecration of his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima, as well as his consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, spurred Archbishop Sample to do the same for Portland.
