We appreciate all of you who have committed to one hour on Wednesdays to visit Jesus in His Most Blessed Sacrament. We have other adorers who stop in for a shorter visit. This gift of having Jesus on the altar all day is a true blessing for our parish. Those who are not able to come can benefit by joining themselves spiritually in union with our adorers. We thank Father White for allowing this privilege and for the adorers who assure that this blessing will continue here at St. Mary’s. P.S. There are still some openings for more adorers. Jesus does not disappoint! Consecration to Jesus through Mary for Families Here is an opportunity for you to join others in prayer ~~ without leaving your home! One person may do this or families can do this together. There are no meetings or outside requirements. A number of people in our parish have made the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary for Families. The founders of this Apostolate, Jerry and Gwen Coniker of Catholic Familyland in Bloomington, OH, were inspired in this devotion by St. Pope John Paul II and St Louis de Montfort. They offer an excellent way to grow closer to Jesus through the heart of Mary. In following this plan, lives are enriched and graces flow. This family consecration can begin with one person of the family or the whole family; the opportunity to begin is yours. There are no meetings. There are no other requirements other than preparation (at home) and praying, united to all (in the world) who have made this consecration. We encourage you to begin one day at a time, appreciating the special graces of each day as you ponder the readings. Those who wish to renew their consecration may begin their preparation on April 10. ‘First-timers’ can begin your preparation as soon as you would like. The books explaining this movement can be purchased by contacting Ann Kolb. These books contain a great amount of information, inspiration, and prayers along with the preparatory meditations by St. Louis de Montfort and St. Pope John Paul II. Our consecration day (renewal) will take place following the Mass on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, May 13. For further information, you can talk with those who have made the consecration: Madonna Winner, Nancy Winner, Jean Moores, Joan York or Ann Kolb. We hope you will join us on our journey ever deeper into loving devotion of Jesus and His Mother. Ann Kolb can be reached at the rectory 548-1616.
