PARISH MARIAN CONSECRATION
OLG.pngInvitation to Consecrate Yourself and Your Family to Jesus through Mary
During this 100th year since the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima occurred in Portugal, all Catholics in the diocese of Santa Rosa are invited to renew their baptismal promises through consecration to Jesus through Mary. The consecration will occur immediately after the Sunday Masses the weekend of December 2/3.

To gain a deeper understanding of this consecration, it is valuable to learn about the Marian teachings of some of the great saints of the Church: St Louis Marie de Montfort, St Maximilian Kolbe, St Teresa of Calcutta, Pope St John Paul II. We are using the five-week program booklet written by Fr. Gaitley, 33 Days to Morning Glory, as a way to better grasp our relationship to Jesus through Mary. Booklets were distributed the first two weeks of October.
