On the 5th May each year, we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Europe at the Shrine where an ancient statue is honoured in her name. This devotion goes back to over 700 years ago. On 31st May 1979 Pope St. John Paul II approved Our Blessed Lady as the Principal Patroness of the Diocese of Gibraltar, under the title of Our Lady of Europe.
The annual Diocesan Procession of Our Lady of Europe will take place on Wednesday 23rd May at 6:30 p.m. The procession will be as usual, from St. Bernard’s Church to the Shrine. On arrival the Eucharistic celebration will take place.
For more information, please contact Mgr. Azzopardi at St. Theresa’s who is also the Rector of the Shrine and is organizing this procession.
May Our Lady of Europe intercede of us, Her children.
