Costa Rica – Bishops gather at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Angels

The Costa Rican Bishops’ Conference informed that it will hold a moment of Marian prayer to entrust the synod process and the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops to the intercession of the Virgin Mary on 31 May.

This time of prayer will begin with a solemn celebration of the Eucharist in the Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels, Patroness of Costa Rica, in Cartago at 6pm, in the presence of all the country’s bishops, priests, consecrated and lay faithful.
A procession and recitation of the Rosary around the National Shrine will follow.

Diocesan-level celebrations are also planned.

For the occasion, the National Liturgy Commission has prepared a liturgical booklet available in Spanish.
