The community of Servants of The Holy Family celebrate the Feast of The Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary with a solemn high Mass.
The Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary was defined solemnly by the Church. Here are the words of the Dogma:
For the Honour of the Holy and undivided Trinity. For the glory and adornment of the virgin Mother of God. For the exultation of the Catholic Faith. And for the furtherance of the Catholic Religion. By the authority of Jesus Christ our Lord, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and by our own, we declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the most blessed Virgin Mary in the first instant of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by almighty God in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, saviour of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God. And therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful.
