The usual pilgrimage to the Ermida da Penha, where the rosary is then said, will be done by car.
The Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Consecration to Our Lady of Fatima, at the Ermida da Penha, followed by the blessing of the entire population of Macau, by the bishop, will also not be open to the public, and online transmission by the diocese is also planned.
Only at the Mass scheduled for the afternoon at the Church of São Domingos will the presence of the faithful be allowed.
For the Catholic Church, on May 13, the first apparition of the Virgin Mary to the three little shepherds of Fatima was marked in 1917.
In Macau, the celebration of May 13 runs for more than a week, marked by masses in Portuguese and Chinese and a pilgrimage.
