firstname.lastname@example.org "....to extend a hand to many unhappy souls, to strengthen good innocent souls, to help all draw closer to the Immaculata, Mediatrix of All Graces...." We experienced this founding goal of the MI as we teamed with our parish adult choir to carol at two assisted living facilities, lead the English decade of the rosary at the annual diocesan Las Posada, as well as distributed holy cards and miraculous medals to a local homeless shelter on Christmas Day.
After the 11:30am Mass of the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God we will pray the rosary and have refreshments at the Masek?s. We look forward to organizing our parish Living Rosary for January 20. February 24-25th: Parish MI Lenten Retreat preached by FKM, Ann O?Donnell.
