Photos: Five First Saturdays Devotion in St. Anna

Father Gregory Mastey celebrated the first Mass of the Five First Saturdays Devotion at Immaculate Conception Church in St. Anna June 5. This devotion is an act of reparation inspired by the apparitions of the Blessed Mother in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. Watch for the story in the July print edition of The Central Minnesota Catholic.
