FIRST SATURDAY DEVOTION

This Mass will be offered on the First Saturday of the month in keeping with The First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

Our Lady of Fatima on December 10, 1925 gave us a specific way to offer reparation for offenses against her Immaculate Heart.  The Five First Saturday devotion to the Immaculate Heart was given to Sr. Lucia dos Santos by Our Lady of Fatima.   She calls us to attend Holy Mass, go to Confession, recite the Rosary, and meditate on the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary.   See this further explanation from the Marians of the Immaculate Conception for more details about the devotion.

    As we practice it when growing up … First Saturday always follows First Fridays. In those rare months once a year where Saturday begins the month like this May 1st does First Saturday should be May 8th 2021. (As the First Friday in May is May 7th).
    This is done so those who participate in the First Friday / First Saturday Night Vigil devotions are not interupted by a delay. The rule really is First Saturday Follows

      You may be right, but I can’t find anything official about the sequence of days that you mention. If you have something official, please provide it to us so that we can follow the norms. In the meantime, First Saturday Mass for May 2021 will be on the 1st.
      God Bless!

    Thank you for spreading devotion to Mary’s Immaculate Heart especially the devotion of the Communions of reparation on the first Saturdays. There is one small thing, though. Our Lady asked for Holy Communion, not Mass. The reason is that if a person is sick, in the hospital, or homebound, it is still possible for them to fulfill Jesus and Mary’s request for reparation on the first Saturday if someone brings them Holy Communion although it may not be possible for them to go to Mass.

      Dear Marie,
      You are correct, receiving Holy Communion and not attendance at Mass is the standard. Thank you for pointing this out.
      God Bless!
