Parish-Wide Consecration 2022

Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary.

Renew your consecration, or participate for the first time.

Schedule:
Tuesdays, 7:00 PM at St. Pat's May 3rd - 31st
Wednesdays, 7:00 PM at SMOW May 4th - June 1st
Feel free to alternate locations. Attendance at every session is not required.

Materials:
Free copies of "33 Days to Morning Glory" are available.

Use "33 Days to Morning Glory" again, or try a different option.

 

"Total Consecration Through the Mysteries of the Rosary"

A wonderful book! To do it optimally, you'd need a half hour or so that you wanted to dedicate to praying through the meditations well. Also, it takes a few days longer, so you'd want to start 5 full weeks before consecration day.

 

"St. Louis de Montfort's Version--The Original!"

Nothing wrong with this version, either--it's the first! St. Louis de Montfort's version is heavy on recited prayer, so it would be a different approach than "33 Days". But it is tried and true, and loved by many.

 

Contact the office 937-843-3127 to sign up, or with any questions.
