Pope Pius IX defined the dogma of the Immaculate Conception in 1854.
Blessed Duns Scotus defending the Dogma in 1305
We are celebrating Low Mass today at 12 noon
on this lovely feast of the
Immaculate Conception of Our Blessed Lady.
Its particularly relevant to our parish dedication to St Catherine Labouré
and the Miraculous Medal,
which will be part of our focus for the Jubilee Year of Mercy,
as it has so often been associated with bringing people back to the Faith.
