All generations will call me blessed”: “The Church’s devotion to the Blessed Virgin is intrinsic to Christian worship.” The Church rightly honors “the Blessed Virgin with special devotion. From the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honored with the title of ‘Mother of God,’ to whose protection the faithful fly in all their dangers and needs.… This very special devotion … differs essentially from the adoration which is given to the incarnate Word and equally to the Father and the Holy Spirit, and greatly fosters this adoration." The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an “epitome of the whole Gospel,” express this devotion to the Virgin Mary.

We invite all men, women, and families to get closer to JESUS through HIS MOTHER MARY. Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary is the “surest, easiest, shortest, and most perfect means to becoming a saint.” Learn from these spiritual giants of Marian consecration, St. Louis de Monfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Teresa of Calcutta and St. Pope John Paul II who will reveal their own pilgrimages to the Heart of Jesus through our Lady. They will mentor you in your discovery of her maternal beatitude. As first outlined by the great apostle of Marian Consecration, St. Louis Grignion de Monfort, these Saints will lead you into the mystical wonder of our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart.
Signup sheets will also be available at our church’s vestibules.
