The Communal First Saturdays is the first canonically approved public First Saturdays devotion accompanying the Liturgy in a standardized written form that can be established in any parish.
First Saturdays: Our Lady has given us the solution. Are we willing to do what Our Lady tells us to bring peace? Our Lady made 2 special requests to bring the salvation of souls and a certain period of peace to the world. One special request remains to be fulfilled. How do we fulfill this request? Find the answer in the right-hand column.
“If you do what I tell you, many souls will be saved, there will be peace.” Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, July 13, 1917
The First Saturdays devotion is the solution that Our Lady gave for the many world tragedies. How do we fulfill the First Saturdays devotion?
The answer is the Communal First Saturdays!
In the year 2000, the Church officially confirmed that the collegial consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary had been fulfilled (Message of Fatima, vatican.va). In addition, the Vatican wrote:
“Sister Lucia personally confirmed that this solemn and universal act of consecration corresponded to what Our Lady wished (“Sim, està feita, tal como Nossa Senhora a pediu, desde o dia 25 de Março de 1984”: “Yes it has been done just as Our Lady asked, on 25 March 1984”: Letter of 8 November 1989). Hence any further discussion or request is without basis” (Message of Fatima, vatican.va).
The Communal First Saturdays has now spread to a number of different states, Mexico, Colombia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Praise and thanks be to God!
The Catholic Herald in the UK recently wrote an article about the spread of the Communal First Saturdays in the UK and the great response! Please see article here.

“The Communal First Saturdays Apostolate is a gift to the Church! This apostolate is long overdue and a very necessary part of the message of Fatima. I highly recommend this apostolate and book [The Communal First Saturdays], and I have no doubt that Jesus and Mary are very pleased with it. May we all seek to make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! ”
