MADISON -- The Catholic bishops of Wisconsin have joined together to proclaim an Act of Entrustment of the Faithful of Wisconsin to Mary, Mother of Mercy.

The proclamation notes that this statewide act of faith and unity is in recognition of the Jubilee Year of Mercy and in celebration of the intercession of Mary our Mother.

Wisconsin Catholics are encouraged to join together in prayer and commitment, especially during the weekend of October 7 through October 9, which includes the celebration of the Memorial Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

The Rosary Evangelization Apostolate has produced a holy card with the Act of Entrustment prayer, accompanied by a photograph of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima.

Bishop Morlino to proclaim Act of Entrustment
Bishop Robert C. Morlino will proclaim the Act of Entrustment of the Faithful of Wisconsin to Mary, Mother of Mercy on Sunday, Oct. 9, at his 11 a.m. Stational Mass at St. Patrick Church in Madison.

The statue is currently on tour through 100 dioceses in the United States in honor of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima. The tour will reach all five Wisconsin dioceses this fall and is visiting the Diocese of Madison from September 26 through 29 with stops in Wisconsin Dells, Lancaster, Monona, Mt. Horeb, and Madison.
