The Adult Faith Formation and Religious Education Ministries have teamed up for this spiritual retreat to be held at Holy Trinity Church that begins on May 13, 2020 (Feast of Our Lady of Fatima). What is (Marian) Consecration to Mary? “It is giving Mary our full permission (or as much permission as we can) to complete her motherly task in us, which is to form us into other Christs.” - Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC. The closer we are to Mary, the closer we are to Her Son.
We will be using the book “33 Days to Morning Glory” (written in a user-friendly way) by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, that even the busiest of the busy people will have time for this retreat. By using our four giants of Marian consecration - Saints Louis de Montfort, Maximilian Kolbe, Mother Teresa and Pope Saint John Paul II - Fr. Gaitley masterfully summarizes their thoughts and how each lived out his or her consecration to Jesus through Mary into an easy way to grasp and put into practice everyday. We will be guided by Fr. Gaitley through a DVD of talks.
A perfect retreat for those wanting to re-consecrate, renew your love and devotion for Mary or entrusting yourself to Her for the first time; and the easiest and quickest way of becoming a Saint!
If you or someone you know is interested, please sign up with your name, phone number & email by February 14th so we may accommodate a book for everyone. Cost per book is $15.00.
