Recent Consecrations of Dioceses to the Blessed Virgin – REQUEST FOR LIST

UPDATE:  Some people are sending me emails about consecrations.  Thanks, but sorry. I want them posted here and I am not going to do that work.  I have enough to do.

Register.. get approved… post.


I have been hearing numerous reports that bishops have been consecrating the dioceses entrusted to their care to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

May I ask your help in assembling a list of those dioceses?

Please post in the combox.
