The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, December 8th, is a holy day of obligation. The Traditional Latin Mass will be offered at St Stanislaus Church (New Haven) at 5:30 p.m.
The dogma of the Immaculate Conception was given to the Latin Church by Blessed Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854 in the Apostolic Constitution Ineffabilis Deus.
The patroness of the U.S.A. is Mary under the title of the Immaculate Conception. Come and pray for the wellbeing of our country.
