Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary, has been practiced for centuries. Saint John Paul II completed Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary, calling Marian devotion the critical element of his spiritual life. For Saint Benedict's 2016 Parish Mission, all parishioners are encouraged to take part in a do-it-yourself retreat using Fr. Michael Gaitley's 33 Days To Morning Glory as a guide. The book summarizes Marian spirituality through the teachings of saints, such as Mother Teresa. Whether you are entrusting yourself to Mary for the first time, or if you're simply looking to deepen and renew your devotion to Mary, join Saint Benedictparish as together we journey to Jesus through Mary. 33 Days To Morning Glory can be picked up at Saint Benedict, November 4th through 5th. We will begin the retreat November 5th and end on December 8th, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
